The Non-Migratory Flock of Laden Swallows is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.939 billion Swallows enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Spirituality, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Aaaaaarrgh. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Laden economy, worth 131 trillion migratory coconuts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,568 migratory coconuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, Laden Swallows has designated Castle Aaaaaarrgh as its capital city, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Laden Swallows's national animal is the imaginary horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Laden Swallows is ranked 94,033rd in the world and 5th in Monty Python for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,083.22 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
