The Trigger Practice of Birch 93 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, fear of technology, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.958 billion Birch 93ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Birch 93ian economy, worth 64.4 trillion leaves 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, Pizza Delivery, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. 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 21,768 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to, you gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birch 93's national animal is the tree, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Birch 93 is ranked 269,457th in the world and 1st in Past Roleplay for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -163.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
