The Technocracy of Blackphir is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Mancer with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.365 billion Blackphirians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Blackphirian economy, worth 803 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 238,699 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,096,269 per year while the poor average 31,536, a ratio of 34.8 to 1.

The fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, a degree in Premier Mancer Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, and sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackphir's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Blackphir is ranked 64,085th in the world and 3,532nd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64.77 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
