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 notable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.742 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 9,455 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 478,971 Binks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,683,127 per year while the poor average 16,680, a ratio of 220 to 1.

The Blogh Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, Herdmaster Grel is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. 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 86th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 21 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
