Middle Barael

Population399 million



The Most Serene Republic of Middle Barael is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 399 million Baraelim 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scania. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Middle Baraelan economy, worth 26.2 trillion Shenars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,562 Shenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Middle Barael, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and artists are pillars of society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle Barael's national animal is the Puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Middle Barael is ranked 163,650th in the world and 235th in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5.29 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
