The Democratic Republic of Blaash is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 706 million Blaashians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quasar City. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blaashian economy, worth 102 trillion Atoms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,049 Atoms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime is totally unknown. Blaash's national animal is the Mole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blaash is ranked 51,925th in the world and 2,903rd in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.67 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
