The Arling of Balos is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arl Hassik vos Vitari with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.107 billion Balosians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corumai. The average income tax rate is 33.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Balosian economy, worth 195 trillion kamas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 62,849 kamas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balos's national animal is the golden eagle and its national religion is Vezkelios.

Balos is ranked 92,693rd in the world and 7th in Luxembourg City for Most Armed, with 0.37 Weapons Per Person.
