The Commonwealth of Barlomia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Howard with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.426 billion Barlomians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barlo-Manchester. The average income tax rate is 86.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Barlomian economy, worth 322 trillion Barloes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,169 Barloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, both injustice and force-feeding are sticking in the craw of hunger-striking suffragettes, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlomia's national animal is the Bazaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Barlomia is ranked 144,816th in the world and 42nd in RHINIA for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring zero on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
