The Technocratic Republic of Barfleur is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andrew II with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.7 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 prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Hogue. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Barfleurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,003 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 271,081 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Barfleur, the year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals", citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime is almost non-existent, 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 1,409th in the world and 38th in The East Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 57,582.07 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
