The Amorphous Mass of Point Blob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gelatinous Dodecahedron with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.183 billion Point Blobians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Nucleus. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Point Blobian economy, worth an astonishing 10,881 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 539,139 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many believe that Gelatinous Dodecahedron's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it, Point Blob's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, maps of the enemy's positions are often covered in blood, and the nation is a world leader in martyrs per capita. 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 32,001st in the world and 1st in Wild Hunt for Most Developed, scoring 74.14 on the Human Development Index.
