The Concordian Airplane States of Baltanla is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Sir Concorda with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, avowedly heterosexual populace, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 782 million Concordians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Concordiae. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Baltanlan economy, worth 89.5 trillion Condias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 114,455 Condias, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index, Concordiae's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, and statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baltanla's national animal is the Concorde Aircraft, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baltanla is ranked 132,949th in the world and 166th in Concord for Most Extreme, scoring 19.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
