The Autocracy of Baliamark is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Timon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.988 billion Baliamarkans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stallrow. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Baliamarkan economy, worth 129 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,239 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The once prosperous capital is in utter decline, the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baliamark's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baliamark is ranked 41,019th in the world and 14th in Hiyamashu for Most Developed, scoring 69.05 on the Human Development Index.
