Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Barrmania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chancellor Barr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.781 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, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waterfordtopia. The average income tax rate is 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Barrmanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,566 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. Average income is an amazing 238,078 Captain Morganss, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 744th in Lazarus and 14,864th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 8 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
