The Constitutional Monarchy of Birnadia is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.436 billion Birnadians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 51.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Birnadian economy, worth 226 trillion Birnadian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,813 Birnadian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, the Birnadia Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, sex changes are routinely performed at Birnadia's hospitals, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime is totally unknown. Birnadia's national animal is the Birnadian Wild Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Birnadia is ranked 113,882nd in the world and 3,469th in Balder for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 5.17 on the Hayek Index.
