The Community of Blixtland is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 138 million Blixtlenders love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Blixtlandian economy, worth 4.20 trillion blixts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 30,446 blixts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and where there's a will there is usually a password manager. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blixtland's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blixtland is ranked 57,212th in the world and 416th in Europeia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,811.81 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
