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 barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.881 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 7,432 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 276,486 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, students abandon classrooms for online education, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and Ballotonia's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. 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 558th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 123 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
