The Serene republic of Birdax is a massive, safe nation, ruled by falcon von hoodenburg with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 3.858 billion Birdaxians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birdaxia. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Birdaxian economy, worth 399 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,623 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, cigarettes are dead-cheap, state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birdax's national animal is the Pegion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Birdax is ranked 17,544th in the world and 10th in The Galactics Union for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 6,379.79 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
