The Republic of Bareankosha is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 345 million Bareankoshans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Bareankoshan economy, worth 4.41 trillion HKDS 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, highly specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 12,789 HKDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, homeless people dying of starvation are thought to be a necessary cost of preventing terrorism, you can check out of an asylum if you've changed your mind, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bareankosha's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bareankosha is ranked 192,039th in the world and 7,899th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.25 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
