Location: the South Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The United States of Barabarom is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Stephen Cornwallis with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.722 billion Barabaromians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Vid. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Barabaromian economy, worth a remarkable 1,644 trillion gurems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,382 gurems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Photographers have to apply for a license to photograph President Stephen Cornwallis, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, and workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barabarom's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Barabarom is ranked 160,860th in the world and 5,844th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -2.5 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
