Overview Policies 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 rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.623 billion Burlingtonlanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burlington. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Burlingtonlandian economy, worth 393 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,840 Nondescript Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's never enough space in space, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime is totally unknown. Burlingtonland's national animal is the Zephyr, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Burlingtonland is ranked 160,710th in the world and 8,870th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 26.36 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
