The Stuffed leg of lamb with rosemary and pine nuts of The Blaatschapen is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Glorious Shepherd with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 32.553 billion Blaatschapenians 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, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Social Policy is also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Das Kapital Cities. Income tax is unheard of.

The enormous but sluggish Blaatschapenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,906 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 120,010 Keiters, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 420,351 per year while the poor average 24,877, a ratio of 16.9 to 1.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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 18,562nd in the world and 4th in Snazzy for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 76.87 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
