The Colony of Barbariax is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Barbo McBarbari with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, vat-grown people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.64 billion Barbariaxians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barbariax City. The average income tax rate is 3.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Barbariaxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,158 trillion Barbs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 282,474 Barbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Barbariax, and 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive. Crime is totally unknown. Barbariax's national animal is the Barbar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barbariax is ranked 191,124th in the world and 33rd in Novus Lucidum for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -7.75 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
