The Airborne Flock of Migrating Geese is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Papa Goose with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 30.948 billion Geese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 72.8%.

The large but sluggish Migrating Geesean economy, worth 616 trillion nest eggs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 19,904 nest eggs, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Birdland's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, citizens often ask "what has information technology ever done for us?", carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, and old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime. 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 181,785th in the world and 19th in The New Nations of Ridgeview for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -9.3 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
