The Thracian State of The Hellespont is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Boris Asen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.054 billion Bulgars are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tsarigrad. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bulgar economy, worth 321 trillion Bulgar rubles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,750 Bulgar rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

You don't need a smoking gun to arrest someone for promoting guns, school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hellespont's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Hellespont is ranked 104,434th in the world and 6th in Great Tenochtitlan Entente for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,426.85 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
