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 compulsory vegetarianism, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.969 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 65.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Blargian economy, worth 456 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 Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 115,130 Plarps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. 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 57,310th in the world and 99th in Wintreath for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,564.97 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
