Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Herd of Blogh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Herdmaster Grel with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, rum-swilling pirates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.616 billion Blogh enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 9,399 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 479,164 Binks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,816,205 per year while the poor average 14,303, a ratio of 266 to 1.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. 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 12th in Balder and 463rd in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 20 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
