The Capitalist Nation of Bliuji is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pope Mikkel Everit XVIII with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.166 billion Bliujians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prussia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.

The thriving Bliujish economy, worth 103 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 88,594 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 318,655 per year while the poor average 17,630, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, and voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low. Crime is moderate. Bliuji's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Bliuji is ranked 151,822nd in the world and 27th in Swine for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -12.65 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
