The Technocracy of Blackphir is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Mancer with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.44 billion Blackphirians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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. The average income tax rate is 91.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Blackphirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,336 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 245,718 sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The children of Blackphir are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, and the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers. 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 175,990th in the world and 8,184th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -5.48 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
