The Swinging Jungle of Baloo Kingdom is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 2.106 billion Balooites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baloo Kingdom City. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Baloo Kingdomian economy, worth 285 trillion Prickly Pears a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,685 Prickly Pears, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baloo Kingdom's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran Christianity.

Baloo Kingdom is ranked 56,449th in the world and 9th in Callista for Highest Economic Output, with 285 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
