The Grand Duchy of Burgburgh is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Duke Arburg with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 4.239 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Burgeles. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The thriving Burgeoisie economy, worth 300 trillion spears a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 70,779 spears, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 259,969 per year while the poor average 13,632, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

Political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, Grand Duke Arburg has just been declared ruler of Burgburgh in an international press conference, and Burgburgh has designated Los Burgeles as its capital city. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Burgburgh's national animal is the aurochs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Disciples of the Grill.

Burgburgh is ranked 95,551st in the world and 48th in Esportiva for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 538.14 Tourists Per Hour.
