The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 41.667 billion Ballons love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulipolis. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth an astonishing 13,663 trillion Levs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 327,929 Levs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Reflection is vital for badly behaved politicians, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown. Ballotonia's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Ballotonia is ranked 124,445th in the world and 53rd in Nederland for Most Average, scoring 37.24 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
