OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The United Republic of Baltenlands is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.447 billion Baltens 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 Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baltia. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Balten economy, worth 376 trillion lunes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 84,760 lunes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children asked by parents to 'guess how much I love you' ask for the cash value, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baltenlands's national animal is the predatory manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Baltenlands is ranked 207,180th in the world and 7,005th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 24.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
