The New Bluestocking Homeland

Population10.689 billion

LeaderDear Librarian


The Teetering Bookshelves of The New Bluestocking Homeland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dear Librarian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.689 billion Bluestockings love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertad. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Homelandist economy, worth a remarkable 1,284 trillion Biblios a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,190 Biblios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Bluestocking Homeland's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The New Bluestocking Homeland is ranked 203,683rd in the world and 422nd in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -26.29 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
