The Empire of The Barefoot Anime Girls is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Barefoot Empress Takao I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.621 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Haruna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Barefoot Anime Girlsian economy, worth 352 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, 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 134,507 Rubies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 400,528 per year while the poor average 35,392, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Barefoot Anime Girlsian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Barefoot Empress Takao I, you're only as old as you feel, citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. 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 125,597th in the world and 480th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Primitive, scoring -120.83 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
