The Monarchy of Barlonatar is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Adam with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.883 billion Barlonatarians 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 powerhouse Barlonatarian economy, worth 423 trillion Generic Currency Units a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,967 Generic Currency Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlonatar's national animal is the Alpacca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barlonatar is ranked 122,163rd in the world and 124th in New Western Empire for Most Pro-Market, scoring 40.89 on the Rand Index.
