Bala Mantre

The Germanic-Mantrean Empire of Bala Mantre is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Ashkenzic VII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, avowedly heterosexual populace, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.46 billion Bala Mantreans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hak Li. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Bala Mantrean economy, worth 438 trillion Kronors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 178,300 Kronors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Vaccinations are mandatory, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bala Mantre's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Yamastian.

Bala Mantre is ranked 218,391st in the world and 12,537th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.49 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
