The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ubiquitous missile silos, and national health service. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 38.44 billion Ballons enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulipolis. The average income tax rate is 5.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth an astonishing 11,498 trillion Levs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 299,126 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, and Ballotonia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ballotonia's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Atheism.

Ballotonia is ranked 138,670th in the world and 73rd in Nederland for Most Pro-Market, scoring 34 on the Rand Index.
