The Green and Pleasant Land of Parc Blundell is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Vetinari with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.298 billion Blundellians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Parc Blundellian economy, worth a remarkable 3,476 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 171,254 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Lord Vetinari's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parc Blundell's national animal is the Lich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Parc Blundell is ranked 230,334th in the world and 5,532nd in the Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -292.02 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
