The Fascist Flock of New Birblands is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Birbrul with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.104 billion birbs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birblin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.2%.

The frighteningly efficient birbish economy, worth 579 trillion birbseeds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 113,529 birbseeds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 617,488 per year while the poor average 10,731, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Hotels often double as quarantine zones, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, school uniforms are compulsory, and travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. New Birblands's national animal is the birb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chirpism.

New Birblands is ranked 25,029th in the world and 684th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 113,529.22 Standard Monetary Units.
