The Reborn from the Ashes of Burkani is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 6.249 billion Burks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iljandir. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Burkish economy, worth 773 trillion gold standards a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,819 gold standards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

State-sanctioned torture is okay so long as there's no icky blood, foreign powers often deal with problems that Burkani can't handle, catcalling has been replaced by slut-shaming, and only native-born Burks who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burkani's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pantheonism.

Burkani is ranked 149,643rd in the world and 26th in The Concert of Europe for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 39.65 Workforce Participation Rate.
