The B O R G E R-B U L L D O G S of Berthin is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Eric Raymond aka B O R G E R with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.571 billion B O R G E R SS are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of B O R G E R. The average income tax rate is 78.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Berthinian economy, worth 728 trillion B O R G E RS 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 110,867 B O R G E RS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

B O R G E R SS incessantly needle their doctors for relief, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, and wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berthin's national animal is the B O R G E R, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is B O R G E R.

Berthin is ranked 12,566th in the world and 2nd in The Exarchal Republic for Most Developed, scoring 83.46 on the Human Development Index.
