Old Blackwood

The Militarised Empire of Old Blackwood is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Tex Blackwood with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.391 billion Old Blackwoodians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ironwood. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Old Blackwoodian economy, worth 658 trillion Foxens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,143 Foxens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Home renovation shows are increasingly popular, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, and military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Blackwood's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Blackwood is ranked 185,848th in the world and 6,094th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.92 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
