The Kingdom of Blarnea is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its aversion to nipples, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 141 million Blarnearians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.7%.

The strong Blarnean economy, worth 7.94 trillion Blarnearian Blois a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,313 Blarnearian Blois, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 207,759 per year while the poor average 10,770, a ratio of 19.3 to 1.

The backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, Leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, and the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blarnea's national animal is the Blarnearian Royal Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Blarnea is ranked 291,230th in the world and 1,099th in Europe for Nudest, with 3.5 cheeks per square mile.
