The Sultanate of Barokah is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Utsman with an even hand, and remarkable for its feral children, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 981 million Barokahians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramallah. The average income tax rate is 37.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Barokahian economy, worth 73.2 trillion Dinars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,575 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barokah's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barokah is ranked 48,653rd in the world and 1,896th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,798.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
