The Embodiment of Hope of The Byrdlands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Byrd Probably with a fair hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.663 billion Byrdlanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Relinski. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Byrdish economy, worth 634 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,805 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Byrdlands's national animal is the grand eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Aamalyism.

The Byrdlands is ranked 20,758th in the world and 58th in Anteria for Smartest Citizens, with 61.11 quips per hour.
