The Dictatorship of Blaesnia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Blaes Kerman with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.689 billion Blaesnians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kerballia. The average income tax rate is 56.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Blaesnian economy, worth 684 trillion Kerbucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 145,891 Kerbucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government would rather execute a hundred innocent men than let one guilty one appeal a verdict, the crispy fried liver of a Kerbal is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants, costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blaesnia's national animal is the Kerbal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Krakenism.

Blaesnia is ranked 121,702nd in the world and 5,691st in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 15.74 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
