The Federation of Ballycklee is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Duce Benito Mussolini with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.745 billion Ballyckleeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 51.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ballyckleean economy, worth 88.6 trillion BRS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,280 BRS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Ballyckleeans, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ballycklee's national animal is the BP and its national religion is Catholicism.

Ballycklee is ranked 23,923rd in the world and 59th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 36.68 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
