The Sovereign Kingdom of The Baltic Alliance is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Erik II with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.912 billion Balticans 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, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariehamn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Baltic Alliancean economy, worth a remarkable 4,573 trillion Swans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 208,729 Swans, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 712,449 per year while the poor average 44,999, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through The Baltic Alliance, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Baltic Alliance's national animal is the Baltic Panda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Forn Sed.

The Baltic Alliance is ranked 20,902nd in the world and 22nd in Nordic Lands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
