The Creed of Burmane is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gabriel The Chosen with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.549 billion Apostles are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acropolis. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apostolic economy, worth 140 trillion Blessings a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,992 Blessings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Acropolis, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Gabriel The Chosen to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burmane's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Gabrielism.

Burmane is ranked 30,332nd in the world and 1,378th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,755.74 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
