The Empire of Blessings is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Blessed One with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 13.67 billion Blessingsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Blessingsian economy, worth 256 trillion Blesses 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 led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 18,753 Blesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, organ donation is compulsory, The Blessed One has just been declared ruler of Blessings in an international press conference, and Islam has been named as Blessings's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blessings's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Blessings is ranked 22,547th in the world and 8th in Iran for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,017.1 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
