Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.739 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 7,366 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 275,503 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. 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 3rd in Nederland and 1,008th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 8 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
