The Colony of Boroughburg is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 487 million Boroughburgians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emily Junior City. The average income tax rate is 60.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Boroughburgian economy, worth 31.1 trillion beaniecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 63,858 beaniecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, it's all quiet on the western front, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boroughburg's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Boroughburg is ranked 12,780th in the world and 265th in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with 192 Meters Of Sunlight.
