Bureau of WA Affairs

The Dominion of Bureau of WA Affairs is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 577 million Burkeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.

The thriving Burkean economy, worth 45.2 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is 78,381 Denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 230,324 per year while the poor average 21,014, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, and no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bureau of WA Affairs's national animal is the Grey Wolf.

Bureau of WA Affairs is ranked 107,581st in the world and 2,846th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,322.15 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
