The Technocratic Republic of Barfleur is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andrew II with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.262 billion Barfleurians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Barfleurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,203 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 282,466 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Free Thought.

Barfleur is ranked 2,072nd in the world and 40th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1,345 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
