The Brooklyn Manzolillos of Balticonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vespasiano Manzolillo with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.209 billion Manzolillos are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brooklyn. The average income tax rate is 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Manzolillo economy, worth 766 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 181,998 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Savvy nightclub-goers know that structurally unsound venues sell the cheapest drinks, the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication, wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, and heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Balticonia's national animal is the Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Organized Crime.

Balticonia is ranked 660th in the world and 1st in Lezra for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 20,998.26 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
