The Bartenders of Barlyy is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pal Barlko with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.712 billion Luigis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istranbarul. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mario economy, worth 234 trillion pepperoni pizzas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 136,830 pepperoni pizzas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Supervisors in Barlyy commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, murderers facing life in prison listen to long sermons on positive thinking, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlyy's national animal is the pizza eating cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is outpizzaing the hut.

Barlyy is ranked 242,921st in the world and 3rd in Scardinavia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 14.65 Whatever.
