Middle Barael

Population575 million



The Most Serene Eco-Republic of Middle Barael is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 575 million Baraelim love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scania. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Middle Baraelan economy, worth 40.6 trillion Shenars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,631 Shenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, military funding has been stripped back, farting etiquette is taught in schools, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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.

Middle Barael is ranked 47,645th in the world and 202nd in Forest for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
