The Amorphous Mass of Point Blob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gelatinous Dodecahedron with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 16.738 billion Point Blobians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Nucleus. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Point Blobian economy, worth a remarkable 8,707 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 520,237 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', psychological disorders are a taboo subject, trespassers entering Gelatinous Dodecahedron's office are immediately vaporized, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. 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 15,750th in the world and 3rd in Wild Hunt for Highest Drug Use, scoring 103 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
