The Republic of Balasanya is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Council of Balsans with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.223 billion Balasanyans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balasar City. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Balasanyan economy, worth 281 trillion balsans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,266 balsans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balasanya's national animal is the bluebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Believe what you want fam.

Balasanya is ranked 148,642nd in the world and 47th in Grace of Gaia for Largest Black Market, with 138 billion Standard Monetary Units.
