The Constitutional Monarchy of Grand Land of BLarg is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King AJ Swain with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.012 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xaelinoc. The average income tax rate is 66.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Blargian economy, worth 603 trillion Plarps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 120,359 Plarps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf", and the children of Grand Land of BLarg are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. 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 35,484th in the world and 90th in Wintreath for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 66.07 Effective Tax Rate.
