The fluffy wooly curly modly bleating sheepies of The Blaatschapen is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Glorious Shepherd with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.04 billion The Blaatschapenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Social Policy is also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Das Kapital Cities. Income tax is unheard of.

The enormous but sluggish The Blaatschapenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,139 trillion Keiters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 120,559 Keiters, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 426,740 per year while the poor average 24,591, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television. Crime is totally unknown. The Blaatschapen's national animal is the bo peep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is atheism.

The Blaatschapen is ranked 1,014th in 10000 Islands and 114,698th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -404 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
