The Please Don't Open That of Bleakfoot is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Governor Laithwaite Canker with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.52 billion Bleakfeet are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterharbour. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bleakfeese economy, worth 969 trillion honks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,630 honks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a dearth of space for new houses, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bleakfoot's national animal is the long pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Not opening things.

Bleakfoot is ranked 1,232nd in the world and 32nd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 22,991 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
