The People's Republic of The Communist Balkan Federation is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 229 million Balkanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Balkanian economy, worth 8.36 trillion Balkan Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 36,489 Balkan Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mummified remains of former kings are apparently discovered every time a tourist loses their wallet, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, and bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Communist Balkan Federation's national animal is the Balkan Bear.

The Communist Balkan Federation is ranked 187,287th in the world and 522nd in First World Order for Most Secular, with 13.34 Atheism Rate.
