The Democratic Republic of Blazewater is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Minister Cristofer Hoffen with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.177 billion Blazians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nightsong. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Blazewaterian economy, worth 102 trillion skagoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 86,900 skagoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, citizens hear a diversity of opinions from a range of billionaire-owned corporations, and Minister Cristofer Hoffen has just been declared ruler of Blazewater in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blazewater's national animal is the orca, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Blazewater is ranked 33,311th in the world and 13th in Niamark for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.91 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
