The Black Hawk of Three Body is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Princeps with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 890 million Trisolarians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Three Bodyian economy, worth 100 trillion Trisolarian Credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 112,439 Trisolarian Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

It's always rabbit season, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, it is broadly agreed that tramp stamps are criminally undesirable, and constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Three Body's national animal is the Trisolarian Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Three Body is ranked 204,107th in the world and 283rd in The Black Hawks for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.67 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
