Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Confederation of Balzaria is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.497 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, socially-minded 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 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Balzarian economy, worth 433 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 Information Technology and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,786 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 41,509th in the world and 1,293rd in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 227.31667396168 Days.
