The Herd of Blogh is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Herdmaster Grel with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.501 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.

Environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, children have only the most basic of education, the nation's cuisine is the laughing stock of Balder, and the Paleoscincus is believed to be 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 3rd in Balder and 102nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 27 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
