Balonia was a country.
A country which minted coin such as nickels, Balonia had long ceased being an independent nation by the early 1950's when Scrooge McDuck sought to con Donald Duck out of a payment by paying him in Balonian money, which he assumed was worthless. Instead, however, the coin's rarity meant a Balonian nickel was now worth 5 dollars.
Where Balonia used to be, and the circumstances of its loss of nation-status, are both unknown, though it is possible that it has some connection with the Duke of Baloni's family, which would place it somewhere in or around Italy.
Behind the scenesEdit
Balonia was mentioned in the 1954 story Secret of Atlantis.
