The Diktatura of Balnik is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Andre Chernobog with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.764 billion Balniki are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rustov. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.1%.

The thriving Balniki economy, worth 665 trillion Vrags a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 75,927 Vrags, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, most academic research has ground to a halt, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Balnik's national animal is the Red Falcon.

Balnik is ranked 94,365th in the world and 100th in The Western Isles for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 67.64 Workforce Participation Rate.
