The Technocracy of Blackphir is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Mancer with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.643 billion Blackphirians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthus. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blackphirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,627 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 245,069 sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Blackphir flights to avoid the pay lavatories, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. 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 244,268th in the world and 9,444th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -785.94 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
