The I'm not Communist of Balaslandia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Chairman with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.71 billion Weebs are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Balaslandia. The average income tax rate is 30.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Anime economy, worth 225 trillion Stars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,677 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Balaslandia's national animal is the Black Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Balaslandian Protestant.

Balaslandia is ranked 194,158th in the world and 9,630th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 12.65 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
