The Airborne Flock of Migrating Geese is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Papa Goose with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 31.468 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 626 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 147,607th in the world and 28th in The Great Chili for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -13.93 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
