The Eternal Democratic Republic of Blustan is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.673 billion Blustani 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plateau of Blustan. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blustanian economy, worth 851 trillion GSS ☉s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,015 GSS ☉s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and organ donation rates have hit a new low. Crime is totally unknown. Blustan's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Blustan is ranked 203,713th in the world and 172nd in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -19.65 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
