The Travelling bird of Birdax is a massive, safe nation, ruled by falcon von hoodenburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.915 billion Birdaxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birdaxia. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Birdaxian economy, worth 168 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,776 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, the only women behind bars are barmaids, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birdax's national animal is the Pegion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Birdax is ranked 69,309th in the world and 12th in Galactic Wars for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,216.97 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
