The Loving Couple of Blightsexual is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Odalia with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.28 billion Blightsexualians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boiling Isles. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Blightsexualian economy, worth 121 trillion snails 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 Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. 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 53,321 snails, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Boiling Isles Natural History Museum, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of Boiling Isles's water use. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blightsexual's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cards.

Blightsexual is ranked 252,698th in the world and 117th in Liberal Democratic Union for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
