The Empire of Barcocoland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Barcoléon IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.998 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, with Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 2,712 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 301,402 Barks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Barks of property damage, and neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers. 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.

Barcocoland is ranked 177,180th in the world and 5,712th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.37 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
