The Confederated Corporations of Balante is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Board with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.325 billion Balanteans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laplace Ring. The average income tax rate is 36.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Balantean economy, worth 336 trillion thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 144,619 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, national surveys report that bellies are getting fuller while heads are getting emptier, exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime is relatively low. Balante's national animal is the anaconda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is NULL.

Balante is ranked 19,248th in the world and 196th in Europe for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
