The Socialist Federation of Balkanturistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade Toma with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.139 billion Balkanturisti are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nathalion. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Balkanturist economy, worth 262 trillion Marxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 83,553 Marxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, and staffers take uppers in the old upper house chamber. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balkanturistan's national animal is the Boyko, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Backgammon.

Balkanturistan is ranked 13,663rd in the world and 56th in The Free Nations Region for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.67 bananas ingested per day.
