The Republic of Burkdiea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by First Citizen Shawn Burkhead with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.131 billion Burkdieans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port de Burk. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Burkdiean economy, worth 79.1 trillion Burks Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,897 Burks Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burkdiea's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Burkdiea is ranked 24,562nd in the world and 1,320th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
