The Land of Golden Blobfish

Population13.224 billion

LeaderSir Phillip


The Scientific Database of The Land of Golden Blobfish is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sir Phillip with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.224 billion Blobfishians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Blobfishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,881 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 142,258 Astrials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sir Phillip spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament. 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 174,141st in the world and 42nd in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring -69.56 on the Rand Index.
