The Most Serene Republic of Barfleur is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andreas Bellotti with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, feral children, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.229 billion Barfleurians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Hogue. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Barfleurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,195 trillion kronor a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 303,677 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Some of the country's most famous photographers are animals, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, and tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barfleur's national animal is the ram, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Barfleur is ranked 1,894th in the world and 39th in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 67,481.67 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
