The Armed Republic of Blakew is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.057 billion Blakewians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.7%.

The very strong Blakewian economy, worth 54.6 trillion Hawkens a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 51,655 Hawkens, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blakew's national animal is the Hawk.

Blakew is ranked 171,955th in the world and 5th in United Federation of Opportunity for Highest Poor Incomes, with 16,704.43 Standard Monetary Units.
