The Kingdom of The Black Organization is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 311 million Italians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy Vatican City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Organizational economy, worth 32.2 trillion Black Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 103,675 Black Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 606,282 per year while the poor average 8,321, a ratio of 72.9 to 1.

Children are regularly married to each other to secure alliances between families, citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, and lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Black Organization's national animal is the Black Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Black Organization is ranked 10,663rd in the world and 2nd in The Great Monarchical Nations for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8,356.64 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
