|Leader||Emperor Blayre III|
The Confederacy of Blayredeshia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Blayre III with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, flagrant waste-dumping, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.223 billion Blayredeshians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Blayredeshian economy, worth 488 trillion Blayre Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 219,881 Blayre Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 645,178 per year while the poor average 59,072, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.
The legal system for the political class is completely separate from the one for normal citizens, billions are being spent on a new island airport, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, and labour strikes are routinely squashed by police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blayredeshia's national animal is the Sable Antelope, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Judeo-Christian Religions.
