The Constitutional Monarchy of Barkorth is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kyle Katarn with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.058 billion Barkorthians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jacinto. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Barkorthian economy, worth 71.6 trillion yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 67,659 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When you fly on Air Barkorth you win a seat or you die, nobody knows why the caged dingo sings, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Kyle Katarn to meetings with foreign heads of state, and Kyle Katarn has just been declared ruler of Barkorth in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barkorth's national animal is the dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barkorth is ranked 25,469th in the world and 844th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,120.19 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
