The Kingdom of Unified Barbrian States is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 822 million Unified Barbrian Statesians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.2%.

The very strong Unified Barbrian Statesian economy, worth 40.9 trillion Barbs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 49,702 Barbs, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unified Barbrian States's national animal is the Black Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Unified Barbrian States is ranked 130,753rd in the world and 39th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
