The Allied States of Buranica is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.671 billion Buranicans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.3%.

The strong Buranican economy, worth 247 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 67,476 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, the death penalty has been reintroduced, and the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight. Crime is totally unknown. Buranica's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buranica is ranked 40,712th in the world and 1st in The Republic of Alvonia for Most Cultured, scoring 70 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
