Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bacon-Loving Hippie Commune of Burlingtonland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by His Ascended Memeness Ken Bone with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.94 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 government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burlington. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Burlingtonlandian economy, worth 292 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 150,822 Nondescript Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, and His Ascended Memeness Ken Bone's speeches are beloved by insomniacs. Crime is totally unknown. Burlingtonland's national animal is the Zephyr, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Burlingtonland is ranked 4,163rd in the world and 194th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 129.49 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
