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 deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 20.517 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 9,848 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 480,018 Binks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,453,036 per year while the poor average 21,493, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and Herdmaster Grel's mistress is the belle at many state balls. 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 1,658th in Balder and 58,254th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 60 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
