The Zardozian Butlers of Barrarabia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Barry the Butler with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.029 billion Barrarabians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mop Head. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Barrarabian economy, worth 574 trillion Handi Wipes a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 114,140 Handi Wipes, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.
The Barrarabia Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barrarabia's national animal is the Bed Bug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Zardozian Way.
