The Swinging Jungle of Baloo Kingdom is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Baloo von Bruinwald XIII with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ritual sacrifices, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, devout population of 5.893 billion Balooites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baloo Kingdom City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Balooite economy, worth 850 trillion Prickly Pears a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,288 Prickly Pears, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, Loud Patriotic Music Day has been ranked the seventh best new holiday of the year, the nation excels at displacement, and the government funds large training centres to turn Bears into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baloo Kingdom's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran Christianity.

Baloo Kingdom is ranked 112,901st in the world and 16th in Callista for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64.78 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
