The New Bluestocking Homeland

Population12.064 billion

LeaderDear Librarian


The Teetering Bookshelves of The New Bluestocking Homeland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dear Librarian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.064 billion Bluestockings love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertad. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Homelandist economy, worth a remarkable 1,455 trillion Biblios a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,685 Biblios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, Homelandist tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, and producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Bluestocking Homeland's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The New Bluestocking Homeland is ranked 4,301st in the world and 50th in Forest for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,823.93 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
