Burnell Lake

Population5.056 billion


The Queendom of Burnell Lake is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 5.056 billion Burnell Lakeans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.6%.

The very strong Burnell Lakean economy, worth 248 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is 49,108 betales, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, extreme political groups are outlawed, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burnell Lake's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Burnell Lake is ranked 124,691st in the world and 6th in North Columbia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 36.61 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
