Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Herd of Blogh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Herdmaster Grel with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.989 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 9,574 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 478,990 Binks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,814,813 per year while the poor average 14,298, a ratio of 266 to 1.

The streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, people all over Blogh are dying of 'Mad Paleoscincus Disease', and cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets. 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 1st in Balder and 32nd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 41 on the Hayek Index.
