Blackborough Republic

Population657 million



The Democratic Republic of Blackborough Republic is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 657 million Blackborough Republicans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Middleton. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Blackborough Republican economy, worth 59.1 trillion shills a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,929 shills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Blackborough Republicans, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackborough Republic's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blackborough Republic is ranked 182,930th in the world and 7,885th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.79 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
