The Herd of Blogh is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Herdmaster Grel with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.711 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.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour. 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 102nd in Balder and 5,608th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 80 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
