The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.293 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.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, much of Ballotonia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 76th in Nederland and 87,312th in the world for Most Average, scoring 577 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
