The Ordensstaat of Burgundian Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Herr Poopenfärten with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.317 billion Burgundians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ost-Paris. The average income tax rate is 31.5%.

The sizeable but sluggish Burgundian economy, worth 37.9 trillion Burgundische Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,781 Burgundische Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and hospitals scramble for new disinfectants following a ban on rubbing alcohol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burgundian Empire's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is the Burgundian System.

Burgundian Empire is ranked 263,290th in the world and 35th in Regionless for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.68 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
