The Rogue Nation of The Isle of Burgrass is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by my Master with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.361 billion Burgrassians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Devil's Grove. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Burgrassian economy, worth a remarkable 1,248 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 232,793 Chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some magnifier-wielding Burgrassians say my Master seems a little lacking in something, there's no more bridging into Burgrassian ports, citizens frequently duel to decide who gets to go for jury duty, and the parliament building has installed a revolving door. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Isle of Burgrass's national animal is the Cockroach, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Patriotism.

The Isle of Burgrass is ranked 1,825th in the world and 42nd in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1,569 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
