El Blurkistan

Population2.1 billion

LeaderMartin Point


The United Republic of El Blurkistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Martin Point with a fair hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.1 billion Blurks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ceex. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blurkic economy, worth 216 trillion Rovas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 103,153 Rovas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Every school is receiving a brand new eraser, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, being Martin Point has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. El Blurkistan's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ramjism.

El Blurkistan is ranked 73,020th in the world and 66th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Economic Output, with 216 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
