The Dominion of Barfleur is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 445 million Barfleurians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taha. The average income tax rate is 21.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Barfleurian economy, worth 29.8 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,989 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, and fistfighting vigilantes tend to suffer a lot of gunshot wounds. Crime is well under control. Barfleur's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barfleur is ranked 71,168th in the world and 2,827th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 76.2 on the Hayek Index.
