The Free Pink Land of Barurot is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chocoball Mukai with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 32.213 billion Barurotians 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 prioritizes Environment, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barurot City. The average income tax rate is 40.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Barurotian economy, worth a remarkable 4,598 trillion Orgies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 142,757 Orgies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Barurot's national animal is the serial philanderer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hedonism.

Barurot is ranked 2,393rd in the world and 2nd in The ProcrastiNations for Highest Economic Output, with 4,598 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
