The Republic of BlackOrder is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 176 million BlackOrderians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 25.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The BlackOrderian economy, worth 9.77 trillion Lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 55,486 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BlackOrder's national animal is the Kedi.

BlackOrder is ranked 111,772nd in the world and 5,160th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 49.6 on the Human Development Index.
