Socialist State of Burundia

Population586 million


The Community of Socialist State of Burundia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 586 million Socialist State of Burundians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Socialist State of Burundian economy, worth 19.2 trillion Burundians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 32,723 Burundians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, Socialist State of Burundia has designated Socialist State of Burundia City as its capital city, and the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist State of Burundia's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist State of Burundia is ranked 185,170th in the world and 6,993rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -80 on the Rand Index.
