The United Socialist States of Burvenchkaht is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Ioannis Mavroblikos with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 920 million Burvenchians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Burvenchkahtian economy, worth 60.1 trillion Papiermarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is 65,367 Papiermarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, glamping Burvenchians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burvenchkaht's national animal is the Reichsadler, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Burvenchkaht is ranked 161,059th in the world and 914th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 61.19 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
