The Socialist Union of Blaist Blaland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Blaist Communist Party with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.575 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, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, 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 3,711 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 273,384 Work Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, workers have seized control of the economy, and the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes. 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 181,156th in the world and 1,054th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -41.28 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
