The Holy Blue Sapiarchy of Bartonia Nova is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hierarchon Bartonius with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.485 billion Bartonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callipolis. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bartonian economy, worth 178 trillion denarii a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,935 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bartonia Nova's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Bartonian Christianity.

Bartonia Nova is ranked 220,888th in the world and 7,144th in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.37 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
