The Economic and Political Union of Blon Gre is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Snow-Laden Horsepackers with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.747 billion Blon Greans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villi Rakkaus. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Blon Grean economy, worth a remarkable 1,183 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 205,864 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, and children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-krona charge on their phone bill. Crime is totally unknown. Blon Gre's national animal is the Eurasian wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blon Gre is ranked 141,221st in the world and 213th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -2.79 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
