Balgand Dis

Population613 million

CapitalNew San Jose

AnimalRed Deer

The People's Republic of Balgand Dis is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 613 million Balgand Disians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New San Jose. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Balgand Disian economy, worth 64.6 trillion Colons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 105,410 Colons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, and more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balgand Dis's national animal is the Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Balgand Dis is ranked 76,695th in the world and 3,670th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,551.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
