The Imperial State of Blouman Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Henry IV with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 19.628 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, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. 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 2,397 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 126,938th in the world and 87th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 567.4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
