LeaderBarcoléon IV


The Empire of Barcocoland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Barcoléon IV with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.974 billion Barcocolandians 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barcoco-City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Barcocolandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,705 trillion Barks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 301,464 Barks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Barks of property damage, and neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barcocoland's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Barcocoism.

Barcocoland is ranked 711th in the world and 15th in the West Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.92 Years.
