“Freedom for all”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
|Capital||Port de Burk|
|Leader||First Citizen Shawn Burkhead|
The Republic of Burkdiea is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by First Citizen Shawn Burkhead with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.001 billion Burkdieans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port de Burk. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Burkdiean economy, worth 174 trillion Burks Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,383 Burks Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, the Burkdiea Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, Burkdiea is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Burkdiea's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
