Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Herd of Blogh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Herdmaster Grel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.471 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 is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bloghopoli. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Blogh economy, worth a remarkable 9,261 trillion Binks a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 475,658 Binks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,214,297 per year while the poor average 26,031, a ratio of 123 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, notable individuals are granted land and titles, and new urban roads are threatening city parks. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Blogh's national animal is the Paleoscincus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Holy Circle of Blogh.

Blogh is ranked 3,911th in Balder and 125,806th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with -41 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
