The Colony of Blob 190 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 382 million card farmers 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped card farming economy, worth 12.0 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 31,355 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, and blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blob 190's national animal is the TCALS, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blob 190 is ranked 76,885th in the world and 205th in Blob for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 951.5 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
