The Most Serene Republic of Barfleur is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andreas Bellotti with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.452 billion Barfleurians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Hogue. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Barfleurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,268 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 304,402 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Barfleurian doors require a Ph.D. to open, giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Andreas Bellotti is a silly poophead, the best defense is a good fence, and prodigal children celebrate as charitable bequests plummet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barfleur's national animal is the ram, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Barfleur is ranked 8,030th in the world and 200th in The East Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 103.62 quips per hour.
