The Democratic Republic of The Republic of Baloo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.479 billion Republic of Balooans 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baloo Land. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Republic of Balooan economy, worth 154 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,144 Gold Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, Republic of Balooan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Republic of Baloo's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Republic of Baloo is ranked 144,416th in the world and 123rd in Sonindia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9.59 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
