The Holy Nordic Kingdom of Blahblah2017 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Olafson the Magnificent with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.534 billion Seventeeners enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virkebloc. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.5%.
The all-consuming Seventeenian economy, worth 595 trillion Kroner a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,650 Kroner, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 340,780 per year while the poor average 25,945, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.
Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, atheists on vacation find Seventeenian Evangelical Church's scriptures make useful doorstops, and the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blahblah2017's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Seventeenian Evangelical Church.
