The Swinging Jungle of Baloo Kingdom is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ritual sacrifices, and daily referendums. The compassionate, devout population of 2.639 billion Balooites 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 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 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Balooite economy, worth 368 trillion Prickly Pears a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,592 Prickly Pears, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', refugees from other nations are flocking to Baloo Kingdom's border, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. 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 24,719th in the world and 11th in Callista for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,718 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
