Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.845 billion Ballons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth a remarkable 7,415 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 276,219 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Ballo's mistress is the belle at many state balls, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. 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 107th in Nederland and 140,286th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with -25 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
