The Most Serene Republic of Ballson is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ballson with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.333 billion Ballsonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Wheat. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ballsonian economy, worth 144 trillion Ricecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Trout Farming industry. Average income is 61,840 Ricecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, every citizen is allowed exactly fifteen minutes of fame, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ballson's national animal is the Bush Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ballson is ranked 22,546th in the world and 1,303rd in Osiris for Safest, scoring 111.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
