The Empire of Bjourn is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kingsteak with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.948 billion Bjournians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 21.4%.

The all-consuming Bjournian economy, worth 204 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 105,141 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, punitive tariffs protect local industry, government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Kingsteak is not a crook, and Kingsteak claims no responsibility for what Kingsteak's government does. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bjourn's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is MiSteakism.

Bjourn is ranked 68,468th in the world and 87th in The Black Hawks for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 71.97 on the Hayek Index.
