The Glorious Empire of Burning Pants is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The King of Braves with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.405 billion Burner of Pants live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of adventure. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pants-Burner economy, worth a remarkable 5,975 trillion G-Stones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 343,316 G-Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, the roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, The King of Braves's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Burning Pants's national animal is the Fighting Mechanoid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Oath Sworn Through Courage.

Burning Pants is ranked 270,656th in the world and 7,462nd in Lazarus for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.95 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
