The Amorphous Mass of Point Blob is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gelatinous Dodecahedron with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 26.855 billion Point Blobians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Nucleus. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Point Blobian economy, worth an astonishing 17,763 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, highly 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 661,467 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, group hugs break out during floor votes, and Gelatinous Dodecahedron panders to nontraditional families. 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 284,893rd in the world and 3rd in Wild Hunt for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -19.84 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
