Socialist Balkon

Population576 million



The People's Republic of Socialist Balkon is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 576 million Balkonis 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 Moscoss. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Balkic economy, worth 60.1 trillion Rupelts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 104,288 Rupelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, euthanasia is illegal, counselors diagnose their clients with motherboard complexes, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Balkon's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist Balkon is ranked 15,021st in the world and 463rd in The Communist Bloc for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,900.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
