The Rickenbacker Jangliness of The Byrds is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by music with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 14.585 billion 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 on the agenda. 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 The Byrds Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and The Byrds is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown. 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 6th in Social Liberal Union and 3,061st in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 34 Whatever.
