The Free Democracy of Ballotonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ballo with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 35.072 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, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Defense and Spirituality not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulipolis. The average income tax rate is 2.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ballotonian economy, worth an astonishing 10,062 trillion Levs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 286,896 Levs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. 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 6,316th in the world and 19th in Nederland for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 480,234.39 Standard Monetary Units.
