The Confederacy of Blechernwald is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 3.525 billion Walders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Festungsburg. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blechernwaldian economy, worth 534 trillion Brassmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 151,686 Brassmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blechernwald's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Blechernwald is ranked 7,894th in the world and 5th in Social Technocratic Union for Smartest Citizens, with 104.55 quips per hour.
