The Rogue Nation of Blobfisholandia is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 67 million Blobfisholandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Blobfisholandian economy, worth 1.53 trillion blobbels 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 22,858 blobbels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blobfisholandians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blobfisholandia's national animal is the blobfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Blobfisholandia is ranked 175,413th in the world and 118th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring -96.95 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
