The Commonwealth of Barlomia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Howard with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.058 billion Barlomians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barlo-Manchester. The average income tax rate is 85.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Barlomian economy, worth 274 trillion Barloes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,708 Barloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", police officers catch up on their paperwork while handing their caseload to PIs, and teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlomia's national animal is the Bazaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Barlomia is ranked 166,547th in the world and 50th in RHINIA for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 45.13 Workforce Participation Rate.
