The United Kingdom of Great Burlington is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Michael PM Jacob Rees Mogg with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.361 billion Burlingtonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Justin. The average income tax rate is 2.9%.

The all-consuming Great Burlingtonian economy, worth 959 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 150,772 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, more and more people are signing up for the government party, and fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Great Burlington's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Church of Burlington.

Great Burlington is ranked 111,498th in the world and 58th in Eurth for Most Income Equality, scoring 21.5 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
