The Stratocracy of Baratochi is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 732 million Baratochins 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gōrudenko. The average income tax rate is 8.0%.

The strong Baratochian economy, worth 46.8 trillion Gins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 63,928 Gins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, and Baratochi has designated Gōrudenko as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Baratochi's national animal is the Swan, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Baratochi is ranked 161,455th in the world and 7,077th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 87.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
