The Lost World of Buming Soul is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.606 billion Buming Soulians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 52%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Buming Soul's national animal is the Giant Squid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its currency is the credit.

Buming Soul is ranked 3rd in The Federal Islands and 39,982nd in the world for Nudest, with 168 Cheeks per Square Mile.
