The Holy Nordic Kingdom of Blahblah2017 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Olafson the Magnificent with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.251 billion Seventeeners enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Spirituality are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virkebloc. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.1%.

The powerhouse Seventeenian economy, worth 347 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 106,840 Kroner, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 347,533 per year while the poor average 24,746, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blahblah2017's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Seventeenian Evangelical Church.

Blahblah2017 is ranked 36,152nd in the world and 1,096th in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 705.73 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
