Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of Balkan Borderlands is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 444 million Balkanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 12.7%.

The all-consuming Balkan Borderlandsian economy, worth 52.4 trillion stones a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,011 stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, 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 10,544th in the world and 17th in Philosophy 115 for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,805.19 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
