The Nomadic Peoples of Blue Happy Happyism is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Mister Carpainter with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.44 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happy Happy Village. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, anti-environmentalist protesters are gunned down without mercy, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Happy Happyism's national animal is the hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is nonexistent, and its currency is the bluple.

Blue Happy Happyism is ranked 70th in Absolution and 122,249th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -16 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
