Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Friendly Drunkards of Blazing Samaritan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by James Beam the Fourth with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.195 billion Blazing Samaritanites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dive Bar. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Blazing Samaritanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,158 trillion Shot Glasses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 164,548 Shot Glasses, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in James Beam the Fourth's bedroom, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blazing Samaritan's national animal is the Drunken Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Farcical Nonsense.

Blazing Samaritan is ranked 2,742nd in the world and 65th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.03 Years.
