The Holy Blue Republic of Blitzkrieg is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Yodle with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, disturbing lack of elderly people, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.583 billion Blitzers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yodle City. The average income tax rate is 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blitzkriegian economy, worth 739 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 97,459 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blitzkrieg's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yodlism.

Blitzkrieg is ranked 152,644th in the world and 58th in Disney World for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 378.93 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
