The Bond Villains of Blazing Samaritan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Auric Goldfinger with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working population of 13.172 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Secret Lair. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Auric Goldfinger's bedroom, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blazing Samaritan's national animal is the Henchman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Egomaniacalism, and its currency is the Pussy Galore.

Blazing Samaritan is ranked 256th in The East Pacific and 9,127th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 6 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
