The Holy Nazi Soviet Reich Union of Barapam is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Führer Anastasia Vonsiatskaya with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 13.037 billion Barapamis 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 Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rasputingrad. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Barapami economy, worth a remarkable 3,362 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 257,950 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, Barapami soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, and older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barapam's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox Christianity.

Barapam is ranked 128,818th in the world and 10th in Slavija for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.33 on the Rand Index.
