The Ethnostate of Morburn is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fuhrer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, public floggings, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 761 million Morburnians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Based Department. The average income tax rate is 52.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Morburnian economy, worth 101 trillion links a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,727 links, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, punitive tariffs protect local industry, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and Fuhrer has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Morburn's national animal is the black, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Morburn is ranked 228,486th in the world and 9,443rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 61.4 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
