The Green Gardens By The Bay of Balestier Majestic is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Zar Balestier with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, state-planned economy, and compulsory vegetarianism. The devout population of 5.286 billion Balestier Majesticians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balestier City. The average income tax rate is 43.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Balestier Majestician economy, worth 545 trillion Balestierian Dollars 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 Tourism, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 103,268 Balestierian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and adulthood begins with the creation of an email account. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Balestier Majestic's national animal is the Balestier Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Balestier Majestic is ranked 91,233rd in the world and 73rd in Texas for Most Authoritarian, with 772.35 milliStalins.
