The Democratic Republic of Blarghastan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Glorious Exalted Leader For Eternity with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.932 billion Blarghastanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Blarghia. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Blarghastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,853 trillion Currs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 312,393 Currs, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, and the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Blarghastan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blarghastan's national animal is the Rock, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violentism.

Blarghastan is ranked 42,261st in the world and 25th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,160.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
