The Empire of Barrmania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Barr with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.685 billion Barrmanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waterfordtopia. The average income tax rate is 47%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing.

Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, the nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one, and Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Barrmania's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Cult of Barr, and its currency is the Captain Morgans.

Barrmania is ranked 114th in Osiris and 4,833rd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 402 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
