The Socialist Sastan Republic of Balticonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Luharak Kyuna with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.359 billion Sasto-Baltis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laumana. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Balticonian economy, worth 431 trillion Dolears a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 182,986 Dolears, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 532,250 per year while the poor average 49,767, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

People who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, the country is constantly under siege trying to protect soccer moms who've settled in occupied territory (Balticonia has found 1 easter egg), organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Balticonia's national animal is the Winged Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism and Tyrellian Christianity.

Balticonia is ranked 159,937th in the world and 28th in Lezra for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 174.37 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
