Balgand Dis

Population1.794 billion

CapitalNew San Jose

AnimalRed Deer

The People's Republic of Balgand Dis is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.794 billion Balgand Disians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New San Jose. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Balgand Disian economy, worth 225 trillion Colons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,637 Colons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Balgand Dis's national animal is the Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Balgand Dis is ranked 7,505th in the world and 397th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,296.21 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
