“MMM! Burger! King!”
~ Homer Simpson on Burger King
The House of Burger has ruled Burgonia since Emperor Whopper III overdosed, after huffing 52 kittens, which eventually won him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1738. Centuries of inbreeding have since left the royal house feeble-minded and soggy. The royal family has roots in McDonald's, and is thus held in contempt by the general populace. They are well known in the food industry. The current monarch is Queen Cheeseburger II, who shall be succeeded by Prince Bacon Cheeseburger once the Peterson family finishes their meal.
Upon the discovery of the new world, Burgonia has attempted to build its own fast food empire, the likes of which Oprah has never seen. The House of Burgerses was the first attempt at what Burgonians referred to as grease government, and established precedents which would create a nation bred on grease and fat philosophy when the colonials declared their independence from the soggy Burgonians. The Burgonians then reacted by eating all the lettuce so no burger could be made ever again in that country.
