The Swinging Jungle of Baloo Kingdom is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ritual sacrifices, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, devout population of 3.231 billion Balooites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baloo Kingdom City. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Balooite economy, worth 455 trillion Prickly Pears a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,077 Prickly Pears, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airport security is provided by private companies, all weapon research has been banned, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baloo Kingdom's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran Christianity.

Baloo Kingdom is ranked 6,750th in the world and 3rd in Callista for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,891.39 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
