The Empire of Black Libra is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Bruce Kentson Wayne with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.323 billion Black Librans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Librangrad. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Libran economy, worth 492 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 212,180 rupees, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, many politicians are in rehab for minor drug offenses, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Libra's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Waynism.

Black Libra is ranked 265,724th in the world and 12,393rd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -368.26 on the Hayek Index.
