The Bacon-Loving Hippie Commune of Burlingtonland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by His Ascended Memeness Ken Bone with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.871 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, 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 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Burlingtonlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,178 trillion Nondescript Monetary Units a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,749 Nondescript Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. 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 155,191st in the world and 7,113th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 24.78 on the Rand Index.
