The Federation of Burakis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Morias Gordon with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.661 billion Burakisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wondersin. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Burakisian economy, worth 207 trillion Bortars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 125,091 Bortars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, Morias Gordon's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burakis's national animal is the Burakis feral hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Burakis is ranked 154,822nd in the world and 4,958th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.37 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
