The Federal republic of Barensa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Storp V with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 6.099 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 Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Awesome town. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Barensan economy, worth 510 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 83,721 kronors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the crab religion.

Barensa is ranked 182,868th in the world and 12th in The Wooloo Pact for Most Pacifist, with 27.91 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
