Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Barrmania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Barr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.019 billion Barrmanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waterfordtopia. The average income tax rate is 1.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Barrmanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,627 trillion Captain Morganss a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 238,456 Captain Morganss, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Half of Barrmania's doctors can't speak the language, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, and speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Barrmania's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of Barr.

Barrmania is ranked 3,564th in Osiris and 135,786th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 8 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
