Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.868 billion Ballons live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Defense and Spirituality not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulipolis. The average income tax rate is 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,860 trillion Levs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 287,059 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, euthanasia is legal, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ballotonia's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Atheism.

Ballotonia is ranked 73,553rd in the world and 26th in Nederland for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,869.01 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
