The Airborne Flock of Migrating Geese is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by MaMa Goose with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 39.642 billion Geese are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birdland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.0%.

The large but sluggish Migrating Geesean economy, worth 770 trillion nest eggs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 19,428 nest eggs, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Migrating Geese's national animal is the goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Migrating Geese is ranked 233,865th in the world and 15th in Paiative for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.13 crimes per hour.
