OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic State of Battlion is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Michael Quinn with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.297 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Battronio. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery industries.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, discarded pennies litter the streets, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Battlion's national animal is the Free Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Battionese Church, and its currency is the Battio.

Battlion is ranked 10th in Esquarium and 4,918th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
