The Empire of Bliss On Demand is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.413 billion Blissers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Insanity's Bid. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blisser economy, worth a remarkable 2,089 trillion Slags 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. 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 an impressive 183,091 Slags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Farmers in arid regions are puzzled with government directions to plant rice this year, the nation has a strict 'no marauding undead' law (Bliss On Demand has found 1 easter egg), judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bliss On Demand's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of Insanity and Anarchy.

Bliss On Demand is ranked 250,567th in the world and 7,767th in Osiris for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 10.86 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
