Regional Influence: Superpower


The International Masters of Barlyy is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Eric Barsen with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.723 billion IMs 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adelaide Countergambit. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Masterful economy, worth 236 trillion botez gambits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,248 botez gambits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlyy's national animal is the horsey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is sacrificing a queen.

Barlyy is ranked 20,901st in the world and 1st in Scardinavia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,337.49 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
