The Historic Union of Burkitts is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by locals with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.044 billion Burkitters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Paul's Church. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Burkittish economy, worth 218 trillion unionbacks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 106,809 unionbacks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, aspiring authors begrudgingly help proofread issue submissions (Burkitts has found 2 easter eggs), politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times, and ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Burkitts's national animal is the oriole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Burkitts is ranked 23,850th in the world and 5th in Dexter for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,215.76 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
