The Awesome Blue Order

Population10.554 billion

CapitalCire City
LeaderEric Krawczyk


The Kingdom of The Awesome Blue Order is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eric Krawczyk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.554 billion Ceruleans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cire City. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The thriving Cerulean economy, worth a remarkable 1,045 trillion Donuts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,108 Donuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomats are always trying to convince other nations to adopt l33t speak, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Awesome Blue Order's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Awesome Blue Order is ranked 274,264th in the world and 1,382nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -20.4 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
