The Empire of Balestria

Population674 million



The Imperium of The Empire of Balestria is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, enforced nudity, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 674 million Balestrians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balestopia. The average income tax rate is 22.1%.

The very strong Balestrian economy, worth 54.7 trillion E$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 81,182 E$s, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, online tourism reviews of The Empire of Balestria are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, the new Pegasus Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, and tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Empire of Balestria's national animal is the Pegasus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Empire of Balestria is ranked 140,440th in the world and 15th in Nation of Balestria for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -4.47 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
