El Blurkistan

Population2.048 billion

LeaderMartin Point


The United Republic of El Blurkistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Martin Point with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.048 billion Blurks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ceex. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blurkic economy, worth 213 trillion Rovas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 104,414 Rovas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, gun ownership is compulsory, and open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. El Blurkistan's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ramjism.

El Blurkistan is ranked 24,986th in the world and 85th in Conch Kingdom for Most Beautiful Environments, with 920.39 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
