The Confederacy of Blayredeshia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Blayre V with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.073 billion Blayredeshian Marks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Blayredeshian economy, worth 988 trillion Blayredeshian 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 242,635 Blayredeshian Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 708,833 per year while the poor average 65,587, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", the nation is wading into dangerous waters, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, and girls in elementary school classes gaze longingly at boys playing tag. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 Christianity.

Blayredeshia is ranked 2,515th in the world and 4th in The Hole To Hide In for Fattest Citizens, with 36.79 Obesity Rate.
