The United Socialist Republic of Burgundu is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Iad Omari with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The humorless population of 1.26 billion Burgunduans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nyejuj | Red City. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Burgunduan economy, worth 120 trillion People's Notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 95,548 People's Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burgundu's national animal is the Donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No official religion.

Burgundu is ranked 146,571st in the world and 7th in The Free Peoples Union for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 441.38 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
