The Federal Republic of Barcides is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 691 million Barcidesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sidon. The average income tax rate is 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Barcidesian economy, worth 64.3 trillion Baals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,019 Baals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Sidon for fear of causing a fuss, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barcides's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Barcides is ranked 25,715th in the world and 3rd in Controlistia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 58,207.58 Standard Monetary Units.
