Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.062 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 7,521 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 277,950 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, much of Ballotonia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. 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 106th in Nederland and 146,704th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -582 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
