Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of Balkan Borderlands is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.387 billion Balkanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Public Transport, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vukojebina. The average income tax rate is 2.9%.

The very strong Balkan Borderlandsian economy, worth 179 trillion stones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 129,339 stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The black cat is a protected species, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, increasing numbers of children in Balkan Borderlands have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Balkan Borderlands's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Balkan Borderlands is ranked 62,492nd in the world and 59th in Philosophy 115 for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 74.81 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
