The Swinging Jungle of Baloo Kingdom is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.132 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, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baloo Kingdom City. The average income tax rate is 82.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Baloo Kingdomian economy, worth 129 trillion Prickly Pears a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,659 Prickly Pears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, the question of 'what is King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Baloo Kingdom are famed for their reasonable volume levels, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII's wardrobe. 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 20,789th in the world and 6th in Bluecrown Keep for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,217.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
