The United Provinces of Balzaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.966 billion Balzarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balzarus. The average income tax rate is 85.3%.

The all-consuming Balzarian economy, worth 853 trillion balzans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,797 balzans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Balzarians marry themselves'. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 61,165th in the world and 3,170th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 21.84 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
