The Nice Country of Republica de Barin is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Olma Sábat with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.318 billion barineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amnistía. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient barinean economy, worth 758 trillion peso barinés a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,667 peso barinés, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republica de Barin's national animal is the yacaré overo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republica de Barin is ranked 1,217th in the world and 798th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 125 Valid Endorsements.
