The Dazzling Reflection of Blue Narcissus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Narcissus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.98 billion Blue Narcissusians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oasis of Perpetual Beauty. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Blue Narcissusian economy, worth a remarkable 9,961 trillion mirrors a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 343,726 mirrors, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,205,840 per year while the poor average 3,265, a ratio of 981 to 1.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, and formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Blue Narcissus's national animal is the gorgeous self, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Blue Narcissus is ranked 229,966th in the world and 37th in The Maritimes for Most Primitive, scoring -282.23 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
