The Imperium of Military Democracy of Birtonia is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.064 billion Birtonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Spire. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Military Democracy of Birtonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,460 trillion Shivaltiers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 161,155 Shivaltiers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, millions of Birtonians are excellent swimmers, boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Military Democracy of Birtonia's national animal is the White Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Military Democracy of Birtonia is ranked 34,073rd in the world and 1,132nd in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
