The Community of Barren Tundra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by MrTundra with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, enforced nudity, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.313 billion Barren Tundrans 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TundraCity. The average income tax rate is 5.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Barren Tundran economy, worth a remarkable 2,904 trillion shells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 130,184 shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Both vegetables and viruses are often smuggled across the border, people can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks, hunters often become the hunted, and employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Barren Tundra's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Barren Tundra is ranked 116,243rd in the world and 73rd in Nederland for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 211.45 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
