The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 26.141 billion Ballons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with areas such as Defence and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulipolis. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Gambling and Information Technology.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and much of Ballotonia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ballotonia's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Atheism, and its currency is the Lev.

Ballotonia is ranked 42nd in Nederland and 26,225th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
