|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Democracy of Balaslandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Andre Dickens with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.345 billion Balaslandians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westheimer. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Balaslandian economy, worth 952 trillion Stars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 150,105 Stars, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.
Well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, phenotypic plasticity is a struggle for sealife in polluted waters, and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balaslandia's national animal is the Black Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholic.
