The Constitutional Monarchy of Barkorth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kyle Katarn with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.8 billion Barkorthians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jacinto. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Barkorthian economy, worth 264 trillion yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,555 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barkorth's national animal is the dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Barkorth is ranked 76,403rd in the world and 2,233rd in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 77.56 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
