The Ethnostate of Morburn is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 754 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Based Department. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Morburnian economy, worth 97.1 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 128,776 links, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, foreign nationals are widely distrusted, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre. 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 50,476th in the world and 2,425th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,176.61 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
