The Rickenbacker Jangliness of The Byrds is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by music with a fair hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.07 billion The Byrdsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fifth Dimension. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The Byrds is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Byrds's national animal is the conservative, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the servile.

The Byrds is ranked 161st in Social Liberal Union and 118,960th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
