The Socialist Union of Blaist Blaland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Blaist Communist Party with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.486 billion Blaites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blanaxon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Blaite economy, worth a remarkable 3,982 trillion Work Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 274,935 Work Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is. Crime is totally unknown. Blaist Blaland's national animal is the African Grey Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Blaist Blaland is ranked 4,851st in the world and 71st in The Communist Bloc for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 516.53 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
