The Confederacy of Blagoewgrad is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.909 billion Blagoewgradians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blagoewgradian economy, worth 257 trillion levs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 134,912 levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Horse Lasagne is a hit, chickens roam the streets freely, and environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests. Crime is totally unknown. Blagoewgrad's national animal is the Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Blagoewgrad is ranked 12,381st in the world and 248th in 10000 Islands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 353.9 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
