The Empire of The Barefoot Anime Girls is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Barefoot Empress Takao I with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.515 billion Takaoists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Haruna. The average income tax rate is 34.6%.

The powerhouse Barefoot Anime Girlsian economy, worth 169 trillion Rubies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 111,703 Rubies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Pocket dialling is a criminal offence, theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and major internet servers have acquired citizenship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Barefoot Anime Girls's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Confederacyism.

The Barefoot Anime Girls is ranked 12,255th in the world and 50th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,640.7 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
