The Free Nationstate of Blue Ottawa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Finn Symons with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.033 billion Blue Ottawans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ottawa. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Blue Ottawan economy, worth 92.9 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,951 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Ottawa's national animal is the Grey Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Blue Ottawa is ranked 153,016th in the world and 5,626th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
