The United Provinces of Balzaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.869 billion Balzarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balzarus. The average income tax rate is 85.4%.
The all-consuming Balzarian economy, worth 924 trillion balzans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,915 balzans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.
Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Balzarians marry themselves'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balzaria's national animal is the wagtail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
