The Grand Duchy of Burgburgh is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.161 billion Burgeoisie are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The thriving Burgeoisie economy, worth 152 trillion spears a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 70,592 spears, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 262,368 per year while the poor average 13,345, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Education and welfare spending are on the rise, spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Burgburgh's national animal is the aurochs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Burgburgh is ranked 27,277th in the world and 11th in Esportiva for Most Pro-Market, scoring 69 on the Rand Index.
