The Empire of Barcocoland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Barcoléon IV with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 9.492 billion Barcocolandians 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barcoco-City. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Barcocolandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,848 trillion Barks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 300,065 Barks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics, meat-eating is frowned upon, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barcocoland's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Barcocoism.
