The Republic of Barnian is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 713 million Barnianians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harryopolis. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Barnianian economy, worth 61.9 trillion Harryieses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Average income is 86,821 Harryieses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious figures have been banned from public holidays to make them more multicultural, posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and increasing numbers of children in Barnian have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barnian's national animal is the Chow chow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barnian is ranked 6,553rd in the world and 84th in Europeia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 56.96 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
