The United Kingdom of Great Burlington is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Michael PM Jacob Rees Mogg with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.717 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.6%.

The all-consuming Great Burlingtonian economy, worth 868 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 151,964 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and clergy do their best to cover up their old tattoos. 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 21,951st in the world and 18th in Eurth for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,942.75 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
