OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The United Republic of El Blurkistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Martin Point with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.066 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, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ceex. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blurkic economy, worth 215 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 104,422 Rovas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, gun ownership is compulsory, and open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost. 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 151,131st in the world and 286th in Conch Kingdom for Most Extreme, scoring 14.08 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
