The Pick Noobs Clean of Black Vulture is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Bones with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, lack of airports, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.645 billion Black Vultureans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boot Hill. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Black Vulturean economy, worth a remarkable 2,943 trillion Gold Carrions a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,857 Gold Carrions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, ill and injured visitors in Black Vulture have to walk it off until they return home, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Vulture's national animal is the Vulture, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Thermalism.

Black Vulture is ranked 249,275th in the world and 8,907th in the West Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.18 Obesity Rate.
