Named after the novel by Charles Dickens, Bleak House is ruled by [[Strong Sad]] and consists of the [[House of the Brothers Strong]]. Strong Sad crowns himself [[Wikipedia:king|king]] of this [[Wikipedia:constitutional monarchy|constitutional monarchy]]. He bases the legitimacy of his new nation on the national flag he designed for it and two national documents he authored: a [[Wikipedia:constitution|constitution]] and a [[Wikipedia:bill of rights|bill of rights]]. Its flag has three stripes, the top and bottom are dark gray with a light gray stripe between them, and a black and white [[Wikipedia:coat of arms|coat of arms]] with images of two bats and a house. Strong Bad derisively calls the country "Blecch House". Strong Bad conquers it by burning the flag, the constitution, and the bill of rights.

The Cheat and Tirerea is a [[Wikipedia:Secession|secessionist territory]] in Strong Badia ruled by [[The Cheat]], consisting of the area near the [[tire]]. Strong Bad considers its name to be the nastiest he's ever heard. Its flag consists of a [[Powered By The Cheat]] drawing of The Cheat giving the tire a [[high five]] on a green background.

The name (at least, the Tirerea portion) may be a reference to [[Wikipedia:Eritrea|Eritrea]], an African country which broke away from [[Wikipedia:Ethiopia|Ethiopia]] in the early 1990s. It may also be a reference to [[Wikipedia:Bosnia and Herzegovina|Bosnia and Herzegovina]], one of the countries formed in the breakup of [[Wikipedia:Yugoslavia|Yugoslavia]].

Coachnya is ruled by [[Coach Z]]. Its location is unknown as it is never visited, but it is likely to be around either the [[race track]] or the [[gymnasium]], as Coach Z says it has a scoreboard. Coachnya buys up all the weapons from Concessionstan's black market in order to defeat the [[Fhqwhgads|Fhqwhgadi]] rebels. Marzipan states that it is not a "developed country", no doubt due to having to fight off the rebellion.

Conncessionstan, also known as Concessionstantinople, is ruled by [[Bubs]] and consists of his [[Bubs' Concession Stand|concession stand]]. Bubs describes it as an [[Wikipedia:Autonomy|autonomous]] [[Wikipedia:Commonwealth|commonwealth]]. Its form of government is unclear, but Bubs asserts that it is [[Wikipedia:Neutral country|neutral territory]]. Therefore, Strong Bad cannot conquer it (nor is it necessary to do so to win the game). Its flag features yellow images of the concession stand, a bear, a grenade, and an organ <!--Honestly not sure what the crap this is; am guessing it's supposed to be a pretendix.--> against a red background, a design similar to the flags of many [[Wikipedia:communist states|communist states]].

"Concessionstan" references several places in Central and Southern Asia that use the suffix "[[Wikipedia:-stan|-stan]]", which essentially means "place of"; its usage to refer to the concession stand is both alliterative and accurate.  "Concessionstantinople" is more alliterative, referring to [[Wikipedia:Constantinople|Constantinople]], presently known as [[Istanbul]] (and referenced by both names in a [[Wikipedia:Istanbul (Not Constantinople)|song]] that's been performed by [[They Might Be Giants]]).

[[Nondescript Nouns|Country]] is ruled by [[Strong Mad]], and is located at the [[stone bridge]]. Papier-mache skulls litter the landscape, and a giant [[Taranchula]] (cardboard cutout), which an unseen announcer claims to be Country's most endangered species, also occupies the area. It seems to always be night here. Strong Mad is described as the nation's "brutal but just warlord". Its flag is simply the word "COUNTRY" written by Strong Mad in all-capital black letters on a white background. Strong Bad is not impressed by the country's name or its flag.

The Homsar Reservation is ruled by [[Homsar]], although what form of government it has is unclear. Indeed, little is known about the area or its inhabitant except that they speak a language no one understands. It is implied that the territory is a [[Wikipedia:developing country|developing country]], as Strong Sad is unsure if the water is safe to drink or if there is modern health care (though it turned out that they had subsidized healthcare). Its flag consists of Homsar's [[bowler hat]] and his "[[parents]]", a cup of [[coffee]] and a Chipwich, against a blue background. An unseen announcer calls it "The Dark Continent", an outdated reference to [[Wikipedia:Africa|Africa]].

The name of the country ruled together by [[Homestar Runner]] and [[Marzipan]] is under debate. Marzipan insists on the Free People's Republic of Marzistar, but Homestar prefers to call it Homezipan. The country consists of Marzipan's front and back yards, and possibly her house. Marzipan says that "Marzistar is a hostile territory", while it seems that Homestar is a bit too concerned over declaring fruit. Marzipan refers to the country as a Free [[Wikipedia:People's Republic|People's Republic]], which might suggest that it is a [[Wikipedia:communist state|communist state]]; however, she also talks about having "[[Wikipedia:Queen|queening]]" to do, and some of her and Strong Bad's dialogue refers to Homestar as a king, suggesting that the country is a [[Wikipedia:monarchy|monarchy]]. After disputes regarding the Homestarmy, Homestar and Marzipan split the country into East Marzistar (the front yard) and East Homezipan (the back yard). The flag consists of a divided yellow and blue background, and bears the images of a peace sign, Marzipan's ponytail, and a [[duck]].

Pompomerania is ruled by [[Pom Pom]], and appears to consist of [[Club Technochocolate]] (although Strong Bad refers to the club as being in the nation's capital, suggesting the possibility that the country has additional territory). Pom Pom is referred to as a [[Wikipedia:shogun|shogun]], a type of Japanese warlord. Bubs and (after conquering The Cheat and Tirerea) The Cheat can also be found here, tending the bar and serving as DJ, respectively. Its flag consists of a circle colored like Pom Pom against a white background, resembling the [[Wikipedia:flag of Japan|flag of Japan]].

Poopslovakia is ruled by [[The Poopsmith]]. Its location is unknown, and it is never visited during the game. Its currency is hinted to be the "poopee", a reference to [[The Legend of Zelda]]'s rupees or the [[Wikipedia:Rupee|Indian currency]] of the same name. Bubs claims that 100 [[quesos]] is at least a million poopees.
