The Oppressed Peoples of Blamblam is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Basher with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, fear of technology, and absence of drug laws. The quiet, industrious population of 2.631 billion Blamblamians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Powow. The average income tax rate is 54.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Blamblamian economy, worth 91.1 trillion Microns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 34,612 Microns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commemoration of the Great the Rejected Realms War costs almost as much as the war itself, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, army rations are served on silver platters, and lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders. Crime is totally unknown. Blamblam's national animal is the Manatee, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Blamblam is ranked 113,459th in the world and 2,770th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 2,268.95 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
