The Incorporated States of El Barris is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tarradellas with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, vat-grown people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.548 billion Barris have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudad de Barri. The average income tax rate is 54.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Barri economy, worth 232 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 149,956 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians have tenure, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, most citizens in El Barris are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. El Barris's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Taris.

El Barris is ranked 59,341st in the world and 400th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,089.49 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
