The Republic of Balkaland is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 162 million Balkalandians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Welfare, although Defense, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Industry are ignored. The average income tax rate is 10.6%.

The Balkalandian economy, worth 9.43 trillion Balkan Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 58,228 Balkan Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The death penalty has been reintroduced, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Balkaland's national animal is the Eurasian Otter, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Balkaland is ranked 94,603rd in the world and 47th in Greater Cyngland for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.87 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
