The Rights of Flying Eagles is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Benica with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.102 billion Eagles love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Habitat. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Eagleian economy, worth 339 trillion Flyers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,678 Flyers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are reluctantly destroying millions of DNA records, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and populations of two-headed Eagles have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flying Eagles's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eagleism.

Flying Eagles is ranked 199,706th in the world and 1,444th in 10000 Islands for Most Avoided, scoring 0.44 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
