Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 31.272 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 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,986 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 287,376 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and abortions are routinely performed in Ballotonia's hospitals. 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 489th in the world and 2nd in Nederland for Rudest Citizens, with 235.67 Insults Per Minute.
