The Classy Nation of Barnyard Pigs is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.513 billion Pigs are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Environment, Public Transport, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Farmer-in-the-Dell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.1%.

The strong Piggy economy, worth 198 trillion cobs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 43,890 cobs, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and Wicca has been named as Barnyard Pigs's national religion. Crime is a problem. Barnyard Pigs's national animal is the piglet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wicca.

Barnyard Pigs is ranked 164,199th in the world and 24th in Gypsy Lands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -68.56 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
