The United States of Blocklopolis is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 514 million Blocklopolisians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Notchville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.2%.

The very strong Blocklopolisian economy, worth 39.5 trillion Emeralds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,807 Emeralds, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, and a new "thought police" branch is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blocklopolis's national animal is the Creeper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blocklopolis is ranked 167,276th in the world and 281st in The Black Hawks for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 17.73 on the Hayek Index.
