The United Barbaros

Population4.535 billion


The Grossly Barbaric Territories of The United Barbaros is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.535 billion Barbarosians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse United Barbarosian economy, worth 342 trillion Drachmas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,420 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most pop videos prominently feature the United Barbarosian flag, being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Barbaros's national animal is the ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The United Barbaros is ranked 67,347th in the world and 5th in Londinium for Highest Drug Use, scoring 68.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
