OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The People's Republic of Socialist Balkon is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 548 million Balkonis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscoss. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Balkic economy, worth 58.4 trillion Rupelts 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 Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 106,626 Rupelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, not many kids know Shakespeare's Hamlet but most of them have seen unofficial sequel Hamlet III - The Search For Osric, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, and Socialist Balkon's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Balkon's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist Balkon is ranked 22,188th in the world and 437th in The Communist Bloc for Healthiest Citizens, with 9.87 bananas ingested per day.
