The Bacon-Loving Hippie Commune of Burlingtonland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by His Ascended Memeness Ken Bone with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.196 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 Environment, Welfare, 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Burlingtonlandian economy, worth 479 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 149,966 Nondescript Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. 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 121,807th in the world and 6,752nd in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 32.55 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
