Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The TBA of Blitzkeig is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by TBA with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.125 billion Blitzkeigians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TBA. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Blitzkeigian economy, worth a remarkable 1,874 trillion Blitzkeigan Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 132,693 Blitzkeigan Dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 662,479 per year while the poor average 14,963, a ratio of 44.3 to 1.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blitzkeig's national animal is the Blitzkeigan Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Blitzkeig is ranked 52,490th in the world and 3rd in Atlas Puppets for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,255.23 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
