The Ecosocialist Empire of Blargoblarg is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Keulan with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.758 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 4,445 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 204,316 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blargoblarger novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Emperor Keulan, water fights now end with thousands dead, the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Blargoblarger Colonial Thesaurus, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. 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 206,991st in the world and 1st in Zeesh for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.05 Crimes Per Hour.
