Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 29.102 billion Ballons live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Defense and Spirituality not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulipolis. The average income tax rate is 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,336 trillion Levs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 286,454 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, the road to capitalism has proved an epic drama of adventure and exploration, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ballotonia's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Ballotonia is ranked 286th in the world and 3rd in Nederland for Highest Economic Output, with 8,336 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
