The Oppressed Peoples of Barlowe is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 368 million Nukes 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 48.9%.
The very strong Barlowean economy, worth 24.1 trillion Plutoniums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,505 Plutoniums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Barlowe, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, and machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlowe's national animal is the The sun, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
