Socialist State of Burundia

Population402 million


The Community of Socialist State of Burundia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 402 million Socialist State of Burundians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Socialist State of Burundian economy, worth 12.9 trillion Burundians 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 32,024 Burundians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist State of Burundia's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist State of Burundia is ranked 192,440th in the world and 8,323rd in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -7.66 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
