The Republic Confederation of Burturn is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Vicktor Haroldson with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.041 billion Burturnese enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gratoban City. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Burturnese economy, worth 105 trillion Chitins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 100,979 Chitins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, President Vicktor Haroldson has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, it is said that a Burturnese woman's work is never done, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burturn's national animal is the Red-Furred Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Official Religion.

Burturn is ranked 135,015th in the world and 5,193rd in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 59.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
