The Republic of The Bulgarian Balkans is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Vasil Levski with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 33.568 billion Bulgarian Balkansians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varna. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bulgarian Balkansian economy, worth a remarkable 5,287 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,523 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of The Bulgarian Balkans, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bulgarian Balkans's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Bulgarian Balkans is ranked 802nd in the world and 5th in USSR for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.65 Years.
