The Empire of Barrmania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Barr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.336 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 50%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, the government has become increasingly militant, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. 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 118th in Lazarus and 1,762nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 10 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
