The People's Republic of Socialist Balkon is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 560 million Balkonis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscoss. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Balkic economy, worth 60.0 trillion Rupelts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 107,060 Rupelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Balkon's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
