The Holy Vodkaist-Potatoist Land of Belarusball is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 609 million Belarusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minskball. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Belarusian economy, worth 52.2 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 85,709 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, Leader's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belarusball's national animal is the Double-headed White-tailed Serbian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belarusball is ranked 93,930th in the world and 381st in The Communist Bloc for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring zero on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
