LeaderPremier Mancer


The Technocracy of Blackphir is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Mancer with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.975 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Blackphirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,242 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 249,756 sovereigns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,050,860 per year while the poor average 38,519, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

Supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Blackphirians any less frightened, government officials across Blackphir are being "encouraged" to adopt ravens to set an example for the populace, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. 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 32,407th in the world and 1,272nd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 70 on the Rand Index.
