The Lamb pate with toast, lamb kebab with satay sauce, stuffed leg of lamb with rosemary and pine nuts, lamb shank hotpot pie with pickled red cabbage, aromatic lamb casserole with prunes, fruity lamb tagine of The Blaatschapen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Glorious Shepherd with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 46.272 billion Schapens live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Social Policy is also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Das Kapital Cities. Income tax is unheard of.

The enormous but underdeveloped Blaatschapenian economy, worth a remarkable 7,488 trillion keiters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 161,831 keiters, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 541,325 per year while the poor average 35,962, a ratio of 15.1 to 1.

Das Kapital Cities's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, prudishness is on the way out, and The Glorious Shepherd is plotting to coup the Pacific (The Blaatschapen has found 6 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown. The Blaatschapen's national animal is the bo peep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is atheism.

The Blaatschapen is ranked 290,661st in the world and 10th in Snazzy for Best Weather, with -287 meters of sunlight.
