The Seitokuken State of Baratochi is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rui Matsubara-Herrera with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-working population of 2.742 billion Baratochins 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gōrudenko. The average income tax rate is 8.0%.

The strong Baratochian economy, worth 175 trillion Gins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 63,918 Gins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, Baratochi has designated Gōrudenko as its capital city, Rui Matsubara-Herrera has just been declared ruler of Baratochi in an international press conference, and Ichishinkō has been named as Baratochi's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Baratochi's national animal is the Swan, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Ichishinkō.

Baratochi is ranked 182,945th in the world and 8,595th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 449.62 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
