The Bartenders of Barlyy is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pal Barlko with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.674 billion Luigis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istranbarul. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mario economy, worth 226 trillion pepperoni pizzas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 135,048 pepperoni pizzas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military advisors frequently remind San Vitenzan farmers that they have to pull the pin on a grenade before throwing it, ordinary soldiers trade rumors about the top secret "Death From Above" project, rural Luigis stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barlyy's national animal is the pizza eating cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is outpizzaing the hut.

Barlyy is ranked 83,340th in the world and 1st in Scardinavia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 144,172 Standard Monetary Units.
