The Socialist Union of Blaist Blaland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Blaist Communist Party with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.191 billion Blaites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blanaxon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Blaite economy, worth a remarkable 5,560 trillion Work Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 275,385 Work Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime is totally unknown. Blaist Blaland's national animal is the African Grey Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Blaist Blaland is ranked 35,205th in the world and 143rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
