The Federal Republic of Blic is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 745 million Blics are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foundersville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The very strong Blic economy, worth 55.6 trillion Feds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 74,617 Feds, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Foundersville, half of Blic's doctors can't speak the language, and exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Blic's national animal is the Squid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Blic is ranked 17,069th in the world and 1st in New Normandy for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 113.78 on the Hayek Index.
