The Democratic Confederation of Balzaria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.226 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Balzarian economy, worth 602 trillion balzans a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Information Technology. Average income is 58,956 balzans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the World Democratic Confederation Games have been won again by Balzaria as no other country cares enough to compete, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. 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 152,899th in the world and 7,721st in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.73 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
