The United States of Barabarom is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Roberts with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.64 billion Barabaromians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Vid. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Barabaromian economy, worth a remarkable 1,036 trillion gurems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 284,657 gurems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barabarom's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Barabarom is ranked 2,024th in the world and 69th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.87 on the Human Development Index.
