The United Socialist States of Blackbird is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 42.209 billion Blackbirdians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackbird City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Blackbirdian economy, worth a remarkable 8,213 trillion Proletarian Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 194,598 Proletarian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Blackbird's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Blackbird after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Blackbird's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackbird's national animal is the snowshoe rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blackbird is ranked 9,639th in the world and 1st in The Proletariat Coalition for Most Patriotic, with 46.54 flags saluted per person per day.
