The Swinging Jungle of Baloo Kingdom is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.592 billion Balooites 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baloo Kingdom City. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Balooite economy, worth 361 trillion Prickly Pears a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,391 Prickly Pears, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, glamping Balooites won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and children are raised bilingual from an early age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baloo Kingdom's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran Christianity.

Baloo Kingdom is ranked 61,901st in the world and 18th in Callista for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 182,969 Standard Monetary Units.
