The Blot on the Landscape of Barringtonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Grand Duke of Barringtonia with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, strictly enforced bedtime, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.038 billion Barringtonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barringtonia City. The average income tax rate is 22.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Barringtonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,273 trillion Barringtons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 97,682 Barringtons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the endangered saltwater humpback ferret is only seen in captivity programs, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Barringtonia's national animal is the ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Barringtonianity.

Barringtonia is ranked 171,927th in the world and 5,592nd in Balder for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 44.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
