The Green Gardens By The Bay of Emperor Zar Balestier is a massive, pleasant nation, ruled by Emperor Zar Balestier with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The devout population of 3.878 billion Emperor Zar Balestierians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balestier City. The average income tax rate is 35.5%.

The strong Emperor Zar Balestierian economy, worth 278 trillion Balestierian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 71,789 Balestierian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, supervisors in Emperor Zar Balestier commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, and comic books avoid plot inconsistencies by removing the plot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emperor Zar Balestier's national animal is the Balestier Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Emperor Zar Balestier is ranked 72,460th in the world and 51st in Texas for Most Authoritarian, with 874.63 milliStalins.
