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 public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.299 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. The average income tax rate is 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth a remarkable 7,597 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 278,310 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Abortions are routinely performed in Ballotonia's hospitals, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. 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 4th in Nederland and 1,523rd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 2,050.502 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
