The Rogue Nation of Barbarian force is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 830 million Barbarian forceans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of totally safe and not dangerous city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Barbarian forcean economy, worth 82.2 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,047 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 320,109 per year while the poor average 23,160, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place, Barbarian forcean soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, and foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barbarian force's national animal is the gun, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Barbarian force is ranked 19,005th in the world and 2nd in land of prosparity for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,482.42 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
