The Amorphous Mass of Point Blob is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gelatinous Dodecahedron with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.491 billion Point Blobians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Nucleus. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Point Blobian economy, worth an astonishing 10,003 trillion Points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 541,013 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rioting and unrest sweep the nation, wishing you had children is considered a sign of child abuse, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and 90% of active duty PBAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Point Blob's national animal is the amorphous blob, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Superscience.

Point Blob is ranked 207,619th in the world and 3rd in Wild Hunt for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.44 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
