The Bacon-Loving Hippie Commune of Burlingtonland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Ascended Memeness Ken Bone with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.406 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, 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 658 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 149,551 Nondescript Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, and it is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon. 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 3,715th in the world and 189th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 131.98 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
