The Puppet of a foreign state of Blobon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pillby with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 1.704 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Globazar. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blobonian economy, worth 236 trillion Plorts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,041 Plorts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, public ferries only carry enough lifeboats for the first-class passengers, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and school history books often refer to Pillby as "that imperialist pig dog". Crime is totally unknown. Blobon's national animal is the Quk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Albaz.

Blobon is ranked 17,185th in the world and 457th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 84.52 law-abiding acts per hour.
