Elizabeth Black

Population32.903 billion

CapitalCapital Heights


The Queen's State of Elizabeth Black is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 32.903 billion Elizabeth Blackians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 64.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Elizabeth Blackian economy, worth a remarkable 1,384 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,078 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, voting is voluntary, and Elizabeth Black has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elizabeth Black's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Elizabeth Black is ranked 128,045th in the world and 21st in Queen Elizabeth Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 628.24 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
