The Republic of Bloomwealth is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.616 billion Bloomers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Environment and Spirituality are also considered important, while Administration and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bloomish economy, worth 166 trillion grains a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 102,772 grains, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 590,675 per year while the poor average 8,589, a ratio of 68.8 to 1.

Agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, the government is overcome with ennui, Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, and rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bloomwealth's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bloomwealth is ranked 222,868th in the world and 9,664th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -9 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
