The Herd of Blogh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Herdmaster Grel with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.882 billion Blogh enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bloghopoli. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, homeless people are frequently charged with trespassing on public property, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and the Paleoscincus is reportedly extinct. Crime is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Blogh's national animal is the Paleoscincus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Holy Circle of Blogh, and its currency is the Bink.

Blogh is ranked 155th in Balder and 4,023rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 265 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
