The Ethnostate of Morburn is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its closed borders, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 744 million Morburnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Based Department. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Morburnian economy, worth 95.5 trillion links a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,373 links, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Morburn's national animal is the black, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Morburn is ranked 50,452nd in the world and 2,442nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,189.43 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
