|Currency||Scream of Spammers|
The Lord Terrorizer of Spammers of Ballpit is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Goddess with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.501 billion Ballpitians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Francograd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Ballpitian economy, worth 649 trillion Screams of Spammers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 185,590 Screams of Spammers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 575,703 per year while the poor average 46,064, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.
Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, and when you fly on Air Ballpit you win a seat or you die. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ballpit's national animal is the Spam-Eater, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Goddess.
