Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Herd of Blogh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Herdmaster Grel with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 22.351 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Environment and Social Policy not funded at all. 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 11,048 trillion Binks a year, is driven almost 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 494,318 Binks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,285,936 per year while the poor average 64,488, a ratio of 35.4 to 1.

Census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in Blogh after the ban on emigration was lifted, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, and books are so highly regarded in Blogh that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. 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 148,308th in the world and 4,116th in Balder for Smartest Citizens, with 0.42 Quips Per Hour.
