OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Borderlands of Western Barhar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 12.573 billion enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 98%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, politicians are to be found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and property values in suburbs have nosedived after the middle class were forced to live next door to ethnic minorities. Crime is totally unknown. Western Barhar's national animal is the prancing tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the xi.

Western Barhar is ranked 4th in Soviet Union and 46,761st in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 75 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
