The Constitutional Republic of Burgessesborough is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Federal Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.964 billion Burgesses 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 medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charlottesburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Burgessian economy, worth 268 trillion Lady Liberties a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,661 Lady Liberties, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Lending money has become a major liability, epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and many Burgesses twitch nervously at the sight of nuns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Burgessesborough's national animal is the Columbia Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Burgessesborough is ranked 89,013th in the world and 404th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
