The Land of Golden Blobfish

Population10.417 billion

LeaderSir Phillip


The Scientific Database of The Land of Golden Blobfish is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Phillip with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.417 billion Blobfishians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Blobfishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,465 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 140,701 Astrials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, Sir Phillip spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. 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 8,802nd in the world and 15th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Highest Economic Output, with 1,465 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
