The First Incursion of Black Horror 5 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by God-Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.468 billion Black Horror 5ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Temple of God-Emperor. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Black Horror 5ian economy, worth 62.5 trillion Enslaved Natives a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,008 Enslaved Natives, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, suspicious locals close their doors leaving tourists to suffer the elements by themselves, and former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Horror 5's national animal is the Enslaved Native, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is The Word of God-Emperor.

Black Horror 5 is ranked 191,222nd in the world and 1,644th in Devide by Zero for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -28.16 on the Hayek Index.
