The Most Serene Eco-Republic of Middle Barael is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Solomon and PM Marc Nuya with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.048 billion Baraelim love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scania. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The powerhouse Middle Baraelan economy, worth 216 trillion Shenars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,556 Shenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Middle Barael's radio stations, the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, 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, and its national religion is Omnism and Pluralism.

Middle Barael is ranked 1,791st in the world and 60th in Forest for Best Weather, with 489 Meters Of Sunlight.
