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 renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.549 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 7,315 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 275,552 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, abortions are routinely performed in Ballotonia's hospitals, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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 2nd in Nederland and 195th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 17 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
