The Allied States of Blobbo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Billy Bobkins with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.453 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 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 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Blobboan economy, worth a remarkable 1,533 trillion Potatoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,657 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention. 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 200,973rd in the world and 8,222nd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.52 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
