The In a union with Rwekaza of Balaslandia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ur mom with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.195 billion Nerds are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Balaslandia. The average income tax rate is 34.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nerdy economy, worth 285 trillion Stars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,921 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balaslandia's national animal is the Idk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Balaslandian Capitalism.

Balaslandia is ranked 156,171st in the world and 455th in First World Order for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 32.08 on the Hayek Index.
