The Empire of Balestria

Population340 million


CurrencyBalestrian Dollar

The Kingdom of The Empire of Balestria is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 340 million Balestrians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balestopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.2%.

The strong Balestrian economy, worth 26.3 trillion Balestrian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 77,457 Balestrian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, foreign leaders who don't applaud Leader's speeches are regarded as enemies of The Empire of Balestria, children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, and health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Empire of Balestria's national animal is the Leader, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Empire of Balestria is ranked 62,757th in the world and 3rd in Nation of Balestria for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,623.92 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
