The Most Serene Eco-Republic of Middle Barael is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Solomon and PM Marc Nuya with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.799 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 96.2%.

The powerhouse Middle Baraelan economy, worth 182 trillion Shenars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 101,568 Shenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 104,847th in the world and 264th in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 65.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
