Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of Balkan Borderlands is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.74 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, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vukojebina. The average income tax rate is 3.8%.

The thriving Balkan Borderlandsian economy, worth 244 trillion stones a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 140,251 stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, every street in the nation contains at least three law firms, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Balkan Borderlands is ranked 116,773rd in the world and 63rd in Philosophy 115 for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 632.05 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
