The Fascist Flock of New Birblands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Anarchical Communists with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.318 billion birbs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birblin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.5%.

The frighteningly efficient birbish economy, worth 373 trillion birbseeds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 112,433 birbseeds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 408,055 per year while the poor average 22,064, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

Teddy bears and pajamas have replaced briefcases and suits in New Birblands's offices, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Birblands's national animal is the birb and its national religion is Chirpism.

New Birblands is ranked 2,030th in the world and 125th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 38,527 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
