The Socialist Empire of Blargoblarg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Keulan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.903 billion Blargoblargers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amaretto. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Blargoblarger economy, worth a remarkable 3,781 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,063 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, workers' complaints never reach central planning, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blargoblarg's national animal is the Alicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Blargoblarg is ranked 2,235th in the world and 1st in Zeesh for Highest Economic Output, with 3,781 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
