The Technocracy of Blackphir is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Mancer with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.177 billion Blackphirians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthus. The average income tax rate is 91.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Blackphirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,274 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 246,168 sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The freedom to be free is always just out of reach, a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. 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 196,919th in the world and 8,573rd in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.49 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
