The Holy Commonwalth of Birdbow is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.508 billion Birdbowians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arialviw. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Birdbowian economy, worth 216 trillion Pirons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 143,821 Pirons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
The World Holy Commonwalth Games have been won again by Birdbow as no other country cares enough to compete, on-duty Air Birdbow flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, and the new national anthem passes the Turing Test. Crime is totally unknown. Birdbow's national animal is the Phonix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
