“Up the Aardvark!”

The Principality of Burnizia is a tiny, devout nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws. Its compassionate population of 5 million enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level social equality free of the usual accompanying government corruption.
The large government concentrates mainly on Religion & Spirituality, although Healthcare and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 30%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Soda Sales industry.
Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Burnizia’s national animal is the aardvark, which frolics freely in the nation’s many lush forests, and its currency is the pebble.
