The United States of Barabarom is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dune with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.776 billion Barabaromians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Videl. The average income tax rate is 93.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Barabaromian economy, worth 711 trillion gurems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 256,464 gurems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, military spending is on the increase, children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, and fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barabarom's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zeram.

Barabarom is ranked 163,157th in the world and 7,432nd in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 37.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
