The Avian Empire of Accipitridia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kaisen Ikn Ka'Sakhur with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.355 billion Avians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiyessia Nitero. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Accipitridian economy, worth a remarkable 1,148 trillion Otiderks 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 342,306 Otiderks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

It's always rabbit season, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, and cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accipitridia's national animal is the Double-Headed Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Accipitrid Orthodoxy.

Accipitridia is ranked 227,535th in the world and 237th in Institute of Cellulose for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.74 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
