The Flowerdom of New Balticarica is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bjorn I with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 995 million Balticaricans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winstonia. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Balticarican economy, worth 113 trillion Balticarican Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 114,082 Balticarican Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, where there's smoke there's the New Balticarican Forestry Department, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Balticarica's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Balticarica is ranked 6,503rd in the world and 258th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
