The Republic of Blastatania is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.852 billion Blastatanians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 47.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Blastatanian economy, worth 68.9 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 17,894 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blastatania's national animal is the sheep.

Blastatania is ranked 136,916th in the world and 3rd in League Of Allied Powers for Lowest Crime Rates, with 59.67 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
