The Most Serene Eco-Republic of Middle Barael is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Solomon and PM Marc Nuya with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.237 billion Baraelim are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scania. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The powerhouse Middle Baraelan economy, worth 239 trillion Shenars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,203 Shenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle Barael's national animal is the Puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Omnism and Pluralism.

Middle Barael is ranked 100,732nd in the world and 327th in Forest for Largest Populations, with 2.24 billion Capita.
