Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of Balkan Borderlands is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working population of 644 million Balkanians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The all-consuming Balkan Borderlandsian economy, worth 85.7 trillion stones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 133,132 stones, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is 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 15,427th in the world and 25th in Philosophy 115 for Highest Average Incomes, with 133,132.94 Standard Monetary Units.
