The Dominion of Barfleur is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 450 million Barfleurians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taha. The average income tax rate is 24.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Barfleurian economy, worth 29.2 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,784 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away. Crime is well under control. Barfleur's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barfleur is ranked 48,519th in the world and 2,041st in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 26 Atheism Rate.
