The Country of Blorbs is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Grand Chairman Borzilov HSP Kerman with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 12.12 billion Blorbians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kovtski City. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Blorbik economy, worth 816 trillion Funds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,359 Funds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blorbs's national animal is the Kerbealian Bet Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Blorbs is ranked 3,780th in the world and 2nd in Kerbin for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 7,244.39 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
