Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Confederation of Balzaria is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.13 billion Balzarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balzarus. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Balzarian economy, worth 402 trillion balzans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,507 balzans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balzaria's national animal is the wagtail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Balzaria is ranked 140,216th in the world and 7,017th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
