The Empire of Blissfullton is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 111 million Blissfulltonians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Blissfulltonian economy, worth 4.82 trillion Aureuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 43,432 Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Internet flame wars have been known to cause real-world casualties, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, Blissfulltonians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blissfullton's national animal is the Chipmunk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Blissfullton is ranked 104,493rd in the world and 2,887th in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 28.4131068156 Days.
