Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.289 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 7,594 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 278,304 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, abortions are routinely performed in Ballotonia's hospitals, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. 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 162nd in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 23 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
