The Commonwealth of Barlomia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Howard with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.063 billion Barlomians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barlo-Manchester. The average income tax rate is 86.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Barlomian economy, worth 277 trillion Barloes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,747 Barloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and fruit pickers with degrees in Bazaroo psychology are a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlomia's national animal is the Bazaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Barlomia is ranked 1,512th in the world and 2nd in RHINIA for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 13,300.33 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
