The Kingdom of Bari is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hiram I with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.522 billion Barisans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theopolis. The average income tax rate is 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Barisan economy, worth a remarkable 1,976 trillion Barisan nobles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,150 Barisan nobles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Governments opposing Bari are beset by rebels, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, women who display their ankles are shunned by society, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bari's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bari is ranked 169,095th in the world and 14th in Atlas for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 40.09 Workforce Participation Rate.
