The Republic of The Psittacines is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mathieu Perroquet with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.719 billion Psittacinesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Aves. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Psittacinesian economy, worth 394 trillion Pellets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,201 Pellets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', and the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Psittacines's national animal is the Sun Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Druidry.

The Psittacines is ranked 257,217th in the world and 568th in Conch Kingdom for Most Patriotic, with 0.78 flags saluted per person per day.
