The Blobonist Revolution of Blobon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Coj Bilalba Stormhunter with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.485 billion Blobonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albasoil. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Blobonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,273 trillion Plorps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,368 Plorps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Baby monitors have been banned, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and ancestry test results arrive bundled with patent applications. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blobon's national animal is the Bee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Albaroot.

Blobon is ranked 191,585th in the world and 3,484th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 34.78 on the Rand Index.
