The Rise of Le Ballon Rouge is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by le petit garçon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.708 billion Ballon-Rougeans 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ballon-Rougean economy, worth 143 trillion balloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 84,022 balloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of le petit garçon sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, "Le petit garçon got your tongue?" has become a popular idiom, and people boast about their low income on their dating profiles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Le Ballon Rouge's national animal is the protagonist, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Le Ballon Rouge is ranked 166,482nd in the world and 2nd in Freedom and Justice Alliance for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 93,477 Standard Monetary Units.
