The Herd of Blogh is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Herdmaster Grel with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.365 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.

Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Paleoscincus Lasagne is a hit, charity no longer begins at home, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence. 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 2,962nd in Balder and 109,940th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -310 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
