The Great People's Republic of Bartaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bartleby II with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 4.869 billion Bartarians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ifaiv. The average income tax rate is 37.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bartarian economy, worth 669 trillion Schillings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 137,502 Schillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, and economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bartaria's national animal is the Yurkiw Mountain Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bartaria is ranked 5,876th in the world and 5th in GTA Forums for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,162.71 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
