The United Lands of Barronstan is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Great Sage President Barron with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.435 billion Fire Sages 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federal District Zero. The average income tax rate is 87%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, private law firms are unheard of, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barronstan's national animal is the Horned Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Nationalism, and its currency is the draco.

Barronstan is ranked 13th in Yokai and 19,881st in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 30 Dawkins.
