The Colony of Boroughburg is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 684 million Boroughburgians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emily Junior City. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Boroughburgian economy, worth 42.5 trillion beaniecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 62,151 beaniecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and Leader's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boroughburg's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Boroughburg is ranked 110,800th in the world and 535th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,703.83 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
