The Republic Confederation of Burturn is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Vicktor Haroldson with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.273 billion Burturnese 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gratoban City. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Burturnese economy, worth 124 trillion Chitins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 97,664 Chitins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and people often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burturn's national animal is the Red-Furred Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Official Religion-Christian Majority.

Burturn is ranked 23,440th in the world and 1,252nd in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 958.49 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
