Burgertopian Empire

Population4.534 billion

LeaderEmperor Burger


The Dominion of Burgertopian Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Burger with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.534 billion Burgertopian Empireans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burgerton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.

The thriving Burgertopian Empirean economy, worth 284 trillion Burgertons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Average income is 62,754 Burgertons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 226,233 per year while the poor average 12,443, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Burgertopian Empire's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Burgertopian Empire is ranked 150,871st in the world and 84th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 973 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
