The Benevolent Monarchy of Balticonia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 723 million Balticonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cintornia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Balticonian economy, worth 82.4 trillion Dolears a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 113,948 Dolears, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, laws are littered with references to cheese, and Blueriver mercenaries routinely do the army's dirty work. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Balticonia's national animal is the four headed eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Balticonia is ranked 64,265th in the world and 39th in Lezra for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,720.06 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
