The Socialist Union of Blaist Blaland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Blaist Communist Party with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.999 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 4,123 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 274,909 Work Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Blaite Values' advise against being proud of Blaist Blaland, hospitals in Blaist Blaland are too busy serving the needs of The Communist Bloc to see Blaites, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. 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 129th in the world and 1st in The Communist Bloc for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
