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 remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 21.482 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 an astonishing 10,337 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 481,232 Binks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,577,159 per year while the poor average 19,153, a ratio of 186 to 1.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, and young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness'. 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 3,928th in Balder and 139,653rd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -289 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
