The National People's Republic of Blangstan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Wali NanggroŽ Manan Al-falah with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, daily referendums, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.175 billion Blangians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuta Blang. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blangstanian economy, worth 476 trillion Pengs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,000 Pengs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, people say that cubists are rubbish because they can't draw faces, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blangstan's national animal is the Rooster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aswaja.

Blangstan is ranked 296,416th in the world and 50th in United Fascist Workers Association for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.63 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
