The Democratic Republic of Baleholm is a huge, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 321 million Baleholmians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Baleholmian economy, worth 10.3 trillion Pchains a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,996 Pchains, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baleholm's national animal is the Salazarís pit viper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baleholm is ranked 164,991st in the world and 5,317th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.79 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
