The Constitutional Monarchy of Grand Land of BLarg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King AJ Swain with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.616 billion Blargians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xaelinoc. The average income tax rate is 64.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Blargian economy, worth 544 trillion Plarps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 117,961 Plarps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

New legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending King AJ Swain", foreigners are treated with great suspicion, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Land of BLarg's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Grand Land of BLarg is ranked 10,924th in the world and 26th in Wintreath for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 23,866.77 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
