The Bacon-Loving Hippie Commune of Burlingtonland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Ascended Memeness Ken Bone with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.875 billion Burlingtonlanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burlington. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Burlingtonlandian economy, worth 581 trillion Nondescript Monetary Units a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,942 Nondescript Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, Burlingtonlanders submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burlingtonland's national animal is the Zephyr, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Burlingtonland is ranked 2,532nd in the world and 156th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 274.16 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
