The Vrijstaat of Barlyy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by BarlyyChess with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.64 billion Barlyyites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scheveningen. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Barlyyian economy, worth 451 trillion those wooden shoeses 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 Tourism. Average income is an impressive 171,062 those wooden shoeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

BarlyyChess tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights. 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 walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is taking the free juicer.

Barlyy is ranked 233,436th in the world and 56th in Callista for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 16.87 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
