The Foxist Priest of The Balestreich is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.248 billion People without lives are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Fox Temple. The average income tax rate is 55.8%.

The A person with no life economy, worth 50.8 trillion Balestrian dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,732 Balestrian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Archaeological discoveries are often followed by mysterious hamster abductions, Mr Happy's Funland has just been named The Balestreich's new capital, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Balestreich's national animal is the Army, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Balestreich is ranked 6,953rd in the world and 2nd in Communist Balestria for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 37.14 Missed References Per Hour.
