The Most Serene Eco-Republic of Middle Barael is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Solomon and PM Marc Nuya with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.486 billion Baraelim enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scania. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The all-consuming Middle Baraelan economy, worth 281 trillion Shenars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,189 Shenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Baraelim, people boast about their low income on their dating profiles, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle Barael's national animal is the Puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Omnism and Pluralism.

Middle Barael is ranked 193,646th in the world and 298th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -139.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
