Burnsland is located in the semi-rural town of New Cumnock in Scotland, UK. Burnsland was first established on 22 June 2021 as an merger of the former provinces and territories which made up Mainland Freshland, as Freshland's royal family went into exile.

Etymology

Burnsland was named after 18th century Scottish poet Robert Burns, well known for the popular poem "Sweet Afton" about the nearby River Afton.

History

After Freshland was founded by Scottie H. in Late 2017, Burnsland's history began sometime in Early 2018, originally as a small colony which was established in the rural backyard area that would be called "New Paris" by Scottie I. Later on, more colonies and eventually provinces and territories would be established in New Cumnock. These provinces and territories would be formed into Mainland Freshland on 10 December 2020, following a brief insurgency in New Paris. After Freshland's Royal Family went into exile on 22 June 2021, the area was trapped in limbo before being established as an territory by Scottie I, who named named the area "Burnsland" in honour of the world-famous 18th century Scottish poet Robert Burns, who is often referenced in New Cumnock for his poem "Sweet Afton" witch is mainly centred around the River Afton, all provinces and territories were merged together as they were seen as unnecessary by Scottie I. Despite still being the mainland of Freshland, as of May 2022, Burnsland currently has no inhabitants.
