The Holy Blue Zombie of Barlyy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by PM Dan Barlyy with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.464 billion Barlyyians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istranbarul. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Barlyyian economy, worth 189 trillion gold tulips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 129,386 gold tulips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Barlyy' is a smash hit, the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlyy's national animal is the leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is making fun of Nooooooooooooooo.

Barlyy is ranked 232,709th in the world and 1st in NeutraIKEA for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
