The Federal Alliance of United Communal Burrow Republics is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by The UCBR High Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 847 million Burrowers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nelthastia. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Burrower economy, worth 69.9 trillion Unneeded Item Rations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is 82,546 Unneeded Item Rations, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Burrower language, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, military training involves more video games than push-ups, and The UCBR High Council has been known to make speeches in fishing waders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Communal Burrow Republics's national animal is the Sarates, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Communal Burrow Republics is ranked 17,483rd in the world and 4th in The Helysian Chasm for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 18,450.72 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
