The Empire of The Burger King Corporation is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its closed borders, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.226 billion Employees 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whoppertown. The average income tax rate is 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Working economy, worth 151 trillion Burger Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 123,915 Burger Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
The only places to see Pickle Pups now are at local zoos, stews often contain used tissues and pocket fluff, bilingual Employees are viewed with suspicion, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Burger King Corporation's national animal is the Pickle Pup, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
