The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.827 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.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Ballotonia's radio stations, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 75th in Nederland and 110,011th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -17 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
