The Community of Balkan Borderlands is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.027 billion Balkanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Public Transport and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Balkan Borderlandsian economy, worth 128 trillion stones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 125,502 stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Concussed black catball players cannot remember their lineup position, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, Balkan Borderlands's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business. 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 5,293rd in the world and 17th in Philosophy 115 for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,839.8 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
