The Free Land of Baron Bones is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 2.131 billion Baron Bonesians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Baron Bonesian economy, worth 50.3 trillion Bones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 23,590 Bones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, and cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baron Bones's national animal is the Bone Reaving Ape, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baron Bones is ranked 59,921st in the world and 27th in Equilism for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,562.84 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
