Socialist Balkans

LeaderCharis Mortescu


The Federation of Socialist Balkans is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Charis Mortescu with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.456 billion Socialist Balkansians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Pella. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Balkansian economy, worth 199 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 136,966 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Socialist Balkans's national animal is the squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Socialist Balkans is ranked 16,723rd in the world and 239th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 136,966.95 Standard Monetary Units.
