The Reformed Territories of Bursken is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jonny Goldstar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.178 billion Burskonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Treskon. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Burskenian economy, worth 649 trillion Stavs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,550 Stavs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and Bursken has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bursken's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kadores.

Bursken is ranked 16,228th in the world and 137th in Europeia for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,200.01 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
