The Bird Land of Southern-Aves is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Gwen Cardinia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.252 billion Southern-Avesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cockatoo. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern-Avesian economy, worth 458 trillion Aviaries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 140,870 Aviaries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, fat-shaming is now public policy, and money grows on trees. Crime is totally unknown. Southern-Aves's national animal is the Blue-and-gold Macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Birdism.

Southern-Aves is ranked 236,040th in the world and 130th in Gay for Fattest Citizens, with 4.33 Obesity Rate.
