The Rights of Flying Eagles is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Defender with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.373 billion Eagles are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Defenderville. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Eagleian economy, worth 406 trillion Flyers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,899 Flyers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign militaries are taking a particular interest in the nation's abandoned borders and cities, Defender is considering changing the Eagleian flag to one with more glitter, the government has undertaken a massive health education program to combat VODAIS, and angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flying Eagles's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Defenderism.

Flying Eagles is ranked 221,330th in the world and 1,434th in 10000 Islands for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -14.28 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
