The Technocracy of Birdopiane is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Executive Raymond van Marienburg with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.639 billion Birdopianeans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Beacon. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Birdopianean economy, worth 800 trillion CPCS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 142,008 CPCS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime is totally unknown. Birdopiane's national animal is the Pheonix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Birdopiane is ranked 78,461st in the world and 325th in Europe for Most Extreme, scoring 21.4 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
