The Sadistic Dungeons of Psycho Birds is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ab Devil with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.716 billion Psycho Paths 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cookoo Nest. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Psycho Path economy, worth an astonishing 10,293 trillion loonies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 496,884 loonies, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, and aides are afraid to ask if Ab Devil wants a cup of tea or coffee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Psycho Birds's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Devil Worship.

Psycho Birds is ranked 125th in the world and 1st in Canada for Lowest Crime Rates, with 245.51 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
