The Republic of Baltenstein is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 20.129 billion Baltensteiners are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albany. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.2%.

The thriving Baltensteinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 52,442 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 177,867 per year while the poor average 11,414, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, and long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baltenstein's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Baltenstein is ranked 74,258th in the world and 3,036th in Balder for Smartest Citizens, with 32.54 Quips Per Hour.
