The Lord Terrorizer of Spammers of Ballpit is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lady Elora with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, digital currency, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.183 billion Ballpitians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ballpit City. The average income tax rate is 26.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ballpitian economy, worth 288 trillion Screams of Spammers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Gambling, Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 131,986 Screams of Spammers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a mortuary next to every Ballpitian restaurant, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Lady Elora's portrait, and former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Ballpit's national animal is the Spam-Eater, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Goddess Elora.

Ballpit is ranked 26,429th in the world and 707th in the Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 186.52 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
