The Westphalian Wonderland of Blankenheim is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Rolf Hartmann with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.729 billion Blankenheimians, 1.718 billion of whom are zombies, hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahrhütte. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blankenheimian economy, worth 224 trillion Reichsthalers a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,043 Reichsthalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, and most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blankenheim's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Blankenheim is ranked 199,851st in the world and 77th in New West Indies for Most Avoided, scoring 0.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
