The Republic of The barney army is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and zero percent divorce rate. The cynical population of 12.039 billion barney armyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Social Policy, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient barney armyian economy, worth 434 trillion ashers 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, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. 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 36,051 ashers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and political activists are routinely executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The barney army's national animal is the the botham, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The barney army is ranked 45,657th in the world and 1st in Sparfog for Highest Economic Output, with 434 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
