LeaderPremier Mancer


The Technocracy of Blackphir is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Mancer with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.667 billion Blackphirians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Blackphirian economy, worth 607 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 227,832 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,036,869 per year while the poor average 30,604, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

Foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Blackphirian Moonshine", customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and Premier Mancer has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackphir's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Blackphir is ranked 75,359th in the world and 3,995th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,040.62 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
