The United Socialist States of Baldova is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate population of 568 million Baldovans 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, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Baldovan economy, worth 55.6 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 97,843 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baldova's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baldova is ranked 24,099th in the world and 1,273rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 71.59 on the Human Development Index.
