The Militarised Empire of Old Blackwood is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tex Blackwood with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.012 billion Old Blackwoodians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ironwood. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Old Blackwoodian economy, worth 928 trillion Foxens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,782 Foxens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Home renovation shows are increasingly popular, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, and military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Blackwood's national animal is the Finch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Old Blackwood is ranked 245,112th in the world and 6,290th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -9.49 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
