Burkland, officially the Marxist People's Republic of Burkland or the Burklandi Soviet Socialist Republic, (pronounced [bɝklænd], Burklandi: Bravlind Late Proto-Burklandi: Arxistmæn Eople'spæn Epublicræn ofæn Urklandbæn) is a socialist micronation founded on April 3, 2011 which is located on the Antarctic Paulet Island, the Legatian-Burklandi embassy and Mattistan. Following a Marxist, secular and democratic governmental policy, Burkland was founded originally as the ComradeMr Republic, a Maoist micronation which later became Natlandist. Burkland currently consists of three honorary citizens, eight permanent citizens and two non-sentient citizens and has diplomatic relations with an estimated thirty to fifty micronations. The nation is ruled by a elected king and president which makes it a republican monarchy.
Burkland styles itself as a nation following democratic, communist and secular principles in its governmental policies and actions. However the nation doesn't have any opposition party due to its low population and uncommitted involvement in politics. Elections have also ceased by decree of President Matthew Burklandssen who also claimed that the Social Democratic candidate did not want to be president regardless. The area that now comprises Burkland was once under the jurisdiction of Chile as a part of the Antarctic Treaty System. Burkland is a sixth-world nation on the Boodlesmythe-Tallini System of Classification, scores a rating of 2.8 on Linden's Categoric-Gradial (Revised) System and a 3.5 on Matthew's System of Human Rights classification created by the Burklandi president. Micronationally, it borders Antarctica's Elain of Atilnia and Legatia and macronationally it is surrounded by the Republic of Chile's Antarctic claim and the United States. Read more...
| Faryaese - Burklandi relations are diplomatically informal. The progress of the diplomacy between Faryar and the Marxist People's Republic of Burkland are specially difficult thanks to the different opinions and ideologies followed by the governments of the two nations. A good example of this obstacles is the recognition of the Republic of Kosovo, the self-declared independent Autonomous Province of Serbia.
The support by part of the Burklandi government to institutions and actions taken by the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela under Hugo Chávez have made even more complicated the diplomacy between Berin and Burkland, because of the territorial claims of Berin, located in the Mérida City, Venezuela. In August 2011, an interesting proposal from the Burklandi government, degrading Berin to a non-secessionist movement, upset the Berinese officers and the relations between the two micronations got even more stressing. After disscussing the theme, the Presidents of the two nations, Matthew and Richard Garrshire decided to leave the proposal in blank and start over.
As with other nations, the mergation of the Republic of Berin to the Nemkhav Federation, and the political implications of that, marked a final point for the diplomatic relations of the Republic of Berin and the MPR Burkland.
With the independence of Berin as The Faryar, and the membership of both nations in the Zealandian Commonwealth, the diplomacy between the two nations increased and there are possibilities of a treaty or other kind of diplomacy formalization.
The Flag of the Communist Party of Burkland is tricolour of red-white-red with a hammer and sickle in the middle.

The flag is called the Freedom and Communism flag.
