The General of Buranica is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.879 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Buranican economy, worth 331 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,118 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Buranica's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buranica is ranked 160,395th in the world and 25th in Anville for Most Armed, with 0.27 Weapons Per Person.
