The Federation of Balnik is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Andre Chernobog with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.747 billion Balniki are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rustov. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Balniki economy, worth 720 trillion Vrags a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,557 Vrags, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Balnik isn't what it used to be, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balnik's national animal is the Red Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
