The United Socialist States of Burkhai is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 995 million Burkhainians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wahaki. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Burkhaian economy, worth 38.9 trillion Kuhparas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,056 Kuhparas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, B-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, and recognizing the Burkhaian flag qualifies you for citizenship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burkhai's national animal is the Burkhainian Spoonbill, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Burkhai is ranked 197,932nd in the world and 335th in Forest for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12.25 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
