The Allied States of Blobbo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Billy Bobkins with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.867 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 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blobboan economy, worth a remarkable 1,581 trillion Coins 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 145,571 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, and veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days. 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 214,988th in the world and 8,769th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -306.82 on the Hayek Index.
