The Free Land of Barbarian Clans is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 762 million Barbarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid and Industry are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hejmatlund. The average income tax rate is 30.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Barbarian economy, worth 20.4 trillion Barbaris a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,718 Barbaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is rounding up computers and beating them into plowshares, warnings about emergencies are the leading cause of emergency-related injuries, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and the backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barbarian Clans's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barbarian Clans is ranked 89,638th in the world and 5th in New Normandy for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 61.82 on the Hayek Index.
