The Frenchmen of Barlyy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Maxime Vachier-Lagrave with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.73 billion French are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sicilya. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient French economy, worth 237 trillion a6 moves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,156 a6 moves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random, innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, and undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlyy's national animal is the carokan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is sacrificing a queen.

Barlyy is ranked 69,269th in the world and 1st in Scardinavia for Highest Economic Output, with 237 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
