LeaderBarcoléon IV


The Empire of Barcocoland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Barcoléon IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.408 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 isn't funded at all. 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 2,195 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 296,353 Barks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government funds large training centres to turn platypuses into functioning members of society, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, the Barcocolandian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. 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 2,381st in the world and 67th in the West Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 64 Valid Endorsements.
