The Free Nationstate of Blue Ottawa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Finn Symons with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.201 billion Blue Ottawans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ottawa. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Blue Ottawan economy, worth 110 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,702 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Corporate lobbying has been outlawed, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and insanely good theatre productions face government censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Ottawa's national animal is the Grey Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.
