The Rogue Nation of The Isle of Burgrass is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by my Master with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.685 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Devil's Grove. The average income tax rate is 40.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Burgrassian economy, worth 344 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 204,470 Chips, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children are seen fighting in the playground for bread scraps that fall out of diamond-encrusted lunchboxes, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, priests are being drafted by the church load, and celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Isle of Burgrass's national animal is the Cockroach, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Patriotism.

The Isle of Burgrass is ranked 39,960th in the world and 521st in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 344 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
