The United Provinces of Balzaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.466 billion Balzarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balzarus. The average income tax rate is 87.9%.

The all-consuming Balzarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,066 trillion balzans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,228 balzans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Balzarian sovereign territory, and there is something rotten in the state of Balzaria. 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 16,979th in the world and 876th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.41 on the Human Development Index.
