The United Provinces of Balzaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.629 billion Balzarians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balzarus. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Balzarian economy, worth 670 trillion balzans a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,079 balzans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balzaria's national animal is the wagtail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
