The Republic of Blarania is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 161 million Blaranians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Blaranian economy, worth 10.0 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 62,115 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, bald-headed monks sit around the National Meditation Park looking smugly content, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blarania's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blarania is ranked 17,747th in the world and 296th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 113.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
