The Creed of Burmane is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Gabriel The Chosen with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.554 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, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acropolis. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Apostolic economy, worth 144 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 93,066 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 209,395th in the world and 8,776th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.56 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
