The Federation of Balkanturistan is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 704 million Balkanturisti enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nathalion. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Balkanturist economy, worth 29.9 trillion Marxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 42,427 Marxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Marx treacle machine. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Balkanturistan's national animal is the Boyko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Balkanturistan is ranked 65,401st in the world and 164th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,396.62 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
