The Free Nationstate of Blue Ottawa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Finn Symons with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.762 billion Blue Ottawans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ottawa. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blue Ottawan economy, worth 205 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,732 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Ottawa's national animal is the Grey Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Blue Ottawa is ranked 129,033rd in the world and 5,762nd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 21.56 on the Rand Index.
