The Republic of Balustravia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ivan Moskovitchski with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.815 billion Balustravians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krasno. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Balustravian economy, worth 836 trillion Bryets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,260 Bryets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, Ivan Moskovitchski's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", and doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality. Crime is totally unknown. Balustravia's national animal is the Balustravian Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Balustravia is ranked 172,427th in the world and 395th in Europeia for Most Armed, with 0.25 Weapons Per Person.
