The United States of Barabarom is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Stephen Cornwallis with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.244 billion Barabaromians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Vid. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Barabaromian economy, worth a remarkable 1,524 trillion gurems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 290,796 gurems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph President Stephen Cornwallis, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barabarom's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Barabarom is ranked 36,212th in the world and 1,487th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,464.48 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
