“Our father loves us!!”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The New Galactic Empire
The Holy Kingdoms of Barronstan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Pontifex Harvey Barron with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.635 billion Barronstanis 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 Temple of Earthly Residence. 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 Orthodox Christian Buddhism, and its currency is the draco.
