The Diktatura of Balnik is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andre Chernobog with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.326 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 large, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rustov. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Balniki economy, worth 698 trillion Vrags a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,684 Vrags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Balnik isn't what it used to be, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balnik's national animal is the Red Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Balnik is ranked 47,417th in the world and 24th in The Western Isles for Most Authoritarian, with 1,006.02 milliStalins.
