The Most Serene Eco-Republic of Middle Barael is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 539 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scania. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Middle Baraelan economy, worth 37.6 trillion Shenars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,767 Shenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, and incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables. Crime 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.

Middle Barael is ranked 42,758th in the world and 118th in Forest for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
