The Allied States of Blobbo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Billy Bobkins with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.825 billion Blobboans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twinleaf. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Blobboan economy, worth a remarkable 1,296 trillion Potatoes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,917 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Potato treacle machine. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blobbo's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blobbo is ranked 6,270th in the world and 165th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 14,210.73 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
