The Dictatorship of Ordeenstaat-Burgund is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.187 billion Burgundians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Burgundian economy, worth 42.4 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,682 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, school uniforms are compulsory, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, and the world outside is only known of in folklore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ordeenstaat-Burgund's national animal is the Guard dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ordeenstaat-Burgund is ranked 4,252nd in the world and 128th in Osiris for Most Authoritarian, with 8,233.36 milliStalins.
