The Zombie Swinging Jungle of Baloo Kingdom is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII with an even hand, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 1.787 billion Balooites 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baloo Kingdom City. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Baloo Kingdomian economy, worth 234 trillion Prickly Pears a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,983 Prickly Pears, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, the Baloo Kingdomian football team for the Maxxmas ceasefire consists only of Intelligence Corps personnel, and electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high. 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 1,952nd in the world and 1st in Bluecrown Keep for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 3,950.97 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
