The Amorphous Mass of Point Blob is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gelatinous Dodecahedron with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, parental licensing program, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 16.404 billion Point Blobians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Nucleus. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Point Blobian economy, worth a remarkable 8,388 trillion Points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 511,341 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, calling out of the blue has become taboo, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Point Blob's national animal is the amorphous blob, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Superscience.

Point Blob is ranked 30,875th in the world and 3rd in Wild Hunt for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.57 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
