The Imperial State of Blouman Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Henry IV with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 19.572 billion Bloumans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grona. The average income tax rate is 19.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Blouman economy, worth a remarkable 2,390 trillion Herzogs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 122,128 Herzogs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, glamping Bloumans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blouman Empire's national animal is the Yellow Headed Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholic and Reformist.

Blouman Empire is ranked 22,834th in the world and 20th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Black Market, with 15.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
