The Constitutional Monarchy of Barkorth is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kyle Katarn with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.515 billion Barkorthians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jacinto. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Barkorthian economy, worth 98.8 trillion yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 65,193 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barkorth's national animal is the dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barkorth is ranked 111,112th in the world and 1,900th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 98.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
