The Empire of Barrmania is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Chancellor Barr with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.207 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 48%. 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 84th in Lazarus and 1,794th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 338 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
