The Federal republic of Barensa is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Storp V with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 9.429 billion Barensans 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 juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Awesome town. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Barensan economy, worth 806 trillion kronors a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,517 kronors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barensa's national animal is the Slap cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is the crab religion.

Barensa is ranked 18,112th in the world and 3rd in Blackstar for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 6,214.87 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
