The Happy Eagles of Flying Eagles is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Defender with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 7.998 billion Eagles are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Defender City. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Eagleian economy, worth 820 trillion Paper Defenders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 102,560 Paper Defenders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government puts forth the claim that harming young girls is wrong, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and pedants defending Defender observe that psychopaths and sociopaths aren't exactly the same thing. 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 Defenderism.

Flying Eagles is ranked 267,475th in the world and 1,582nd in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 0.53 flags saluted per person per day.
