The Land of Golden Blobfish

Population9.475 billion

LeaderSir Phillip


The Scientific Database of The Land of Golden Blobfish is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Phillip with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.475 billion Blobfishians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blobmania. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blobfishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,329 trillion Astrials a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 140,311 Astrials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Land of Golden Blobfish's national animal is the Blobfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Land of Golden Blobfish is ranked 75,567th in the world and 46th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 763.57 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
