|Leader||King Telmas Chasun CLXXVII|
The Holy Empire Dictatorship of Bala Mantre is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Telmas Chasun CLXXVII with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.827 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 95.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Bala Mantrean economy, worth 334 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. 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 183,219 kronors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
The government-sponsored autobiography 'A King Telmas Chasun CLXXVII For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of King Telmas Chasun CLXXVII's supporters, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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.
