The It of Blazing Samaritan

The It of Blazing Samaritan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pennywise with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.484 billion Blazing Samaritanites 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Derry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Blazing Samaritanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,533 trillion Balloons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 226,001 Balloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, and people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blazing Samaritan's national animal is the Demonic clown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Demonology.

Blazing Samaritan is ranked 143,989th in the world and 5,877th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -10.91 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
