The Balkan Union state

Population1.515 billion



The Federal Republic of The Balkan Union state is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pountchev with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.515 billion Balkaners have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sofia. The average income tax rate is 20.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Balkan economy, worth 190 trillion BLS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 125,423 BLS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, the government is reining in public spending, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Sofia as a backdrop. Crime is totally unknown. The Balkan Union state's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Balkan Union state is ranked 43,067th in the world and 220th in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 257,125 Standard Monetary Units.
