The United States of BarbieBardi is a very large, pleasant nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 103 million BarbieBardians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Healthcare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The strong BarbieBardian economy, worth 7.15 trillion Cadburies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 69,383 Cadburies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 252,957 per year while the poor average 13,520, a ratio of 18.7 to 1.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, chocolate in BarbieBardi has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in BarbieBardi's many privately-owned prisons, and politicians are forced to vote with their party leaders. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. BarbieBardi's national animal is the Pink Panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

BarbieBardi is ranked 89,298th in the world and 38th in Allied Nations for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,162.36 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
