The United States of Blon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, cynical population of 15.148 billion Blonians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.9%.

The thriving Blonian economy, worth 721 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 47,600 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 168,491 per year while the poor average 9,709, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Blon's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blon is ranked 192,682nd in the world and 6,110th in the West Pacific for Safest, scoring 13.64 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
