The Armed Republic of Birnir is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Morgan Bandalag with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.672 billion Birnirians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morgaes. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Birnirian economy, worth 264 trillion Gongs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,887 Gongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, sushi is sold on the black market, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birnir's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Birnir is ranked 14,943rd in the world and 4th in Coalition of Crown Albatross for Lowest Crime Rates, with 86.95 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
