The Colony of A Carrier Pigeon is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, free-roaming dinosaurs, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.389 billion Carrier Pigeonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 39.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Carrier Pigeonian economy, worth 511 trillion crusts a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 80,132 crusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the decommissioned tank divisions of other nations are being bought up en masse by A Carrier Pigeon, Leader's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, and Carrier Pigeonian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Carrier Pigeon's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

A Carrier Pigeon is ranked 49,969th in the world and 1st in The NewsStand for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,233.97 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
