The Nomadic Peoples of Blue Happy Happyism is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mister Carpainter with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.141 billion Blue Happy Happyismians 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.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happy Happy Village. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Blue Happy Happyismian economy, worth 135 trillion bluples a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 13,396 bluples, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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, and its national religion is nonexistent.

Blue Happy Happyism is ranked 4th in Absolution and 364th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 275 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
