The Holy Empire of Birdax is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 265 million 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 23.0%.

The Birdaxian economy, worth 16.6 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,789 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birdax's national animal is the Pegion.

Birdax is ranked 29,060th in the world and 7th in The United Dictatorships and Empires for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14,140.91 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
