The Holy WZF Representative of Ballpit is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 729 million Ballpitians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Yeet Army HQ. The average income tax rate is 20.3%.

The strong Ballpitian economy, worth 53.2 trillion Gold bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,035 Gold bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount The Yeet Army HQ make great practice for foreign snipers, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, the best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers, and the book "Zen and the Art of Dog Maintenance" is inexplicably a worldwide success. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ballpit's national animal is the Monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ballpit is ranked 45,705th in the world and 14th in Warzone Europe for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 74.19 Workforce Participation Rate.
