The Free Land of Bird State is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, devout population of 300 million Birds are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Birdy economy, worth 11.2 trillion Rimu fruits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 37,310 Rimu fruits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bills about shades of lipstick are frequently introduced in the nation's legislature, children are raised bilingual from an early age, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bird State's national animal is the Kākāpō, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bird State is ranked 198,402nd in the world and 289th in Wintreath for Highest Drug Use, scoring 34 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
