The Anti-Pondel Monarchy of Balticonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Luharak Kyuna with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.164 billion Sasto-Baltis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laumana. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Balticonian economy, worth 394 trillion Dolears a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 182,072 Dolears, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 535,022 per year while the poor average 48,814, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, and the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Balticonia's national animal is the Winged Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism and Tyrellian Christianity.

Balticonia is ranked 35,466th in the world and 13th in Lezra for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,171.74 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
