The Technocratic Republic of Barfleur is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Andrew II with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.875 billion Barfleurians 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, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Hogue. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Barfleurian economy, worth 633 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 220,216 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barfleur's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barfleur is ranked 201,409th in the world and 8,700th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 47.73 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
