OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Dull Burham is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.352 billion Dull Burhamians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dull Burhamian economy, worth 178 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Woodchip Exports, Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,001 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, and when you fly on Air Dull Burham you win a seat or you die. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dull Burham's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dull Burham is ranked 49,950th in the world and 1st in Dead Sea for Most Extreme, scoring 27.32 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
