The Good children of Spring Chicken is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Al Copelin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.828 billion Copelians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Welfare, with Healthcare, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Orleans. The average income tax rate is 15.8%.

The very strong Spring Chickenian economy, worth 889 trillion eggs a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 40,734 eggs, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Territories have the right to secede if they aren't happy, the government loves seeing the little people fight, Mountain Chicken is one of the most popular forenames in Spring Chicken, and X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Spring Chicken's national animal is the Mountain Chicken and its national religion is Bokononism.

Spring Chicken is ranked 110,044th in the world and 5,427th in Chicken overlords for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,192.29 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
