The Kingdom of Bari is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hiram I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.511 billion Barisans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theopolis. The average income tax rate is 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Barisan economy, worth a remarkable 1,974 trillion Barisan nobles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,150 Barisan nobles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Governments opposing Bari are beset by rebels, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, women who display their ankles are shunned by society, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bari's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bari is ranked 6,132nd in the world and 4th in Atlas for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 92.76 Effective Tax Rate.
