The Kingdom of The United Isles of Burgessland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Thomas I of Burgessland with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.428 billion bell-endish enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Basing. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The frighteningly efficient bell-endish economy, worth 662 trillion Burgessland Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 149,705 Burgessland Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, King Thomas I of Burgessland has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The United Isles of Burgessland's national animal is the Imperial Shag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The United Isles of Burgessland is ranked 82,345th in the world and 8th in Union of Shoddy Subaverage Republics for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,017.27 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
