Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of Blarghastan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Glorious Exalted Leader For Eternity with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.378 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, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 1,680 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 4,171st in the world and 7th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Avoided, scoring 626.93 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
