The Clockwork Plague of BlackLight Covenant is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Boris with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.997 billion BlackLight Covenantians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terbarlynton. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient BlackLight Covenantian economy, worth a remarkable 2,363 trillion Retals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 214,917 Retals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great BlackLight Covenantian Liberator", citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise, and Boris's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BlackLight Covenant's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unknown.

BlackLight Covenant is ranked 206,316th in the world and 317th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.52 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
