The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 35.434 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 also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulipolis. The average income tax rate is 3.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth an astonishing 10,245 trillion Levs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 289,137 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals", high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, Ballo's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 10,539th in the world and 5th in Nederland for Most Inclusive, scoring 172.43 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
