The Sadistic Dungeons of Psycho Birds is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ab Devil with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.218 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 10,505 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 495,105 loonies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,415,493 per year while the poor average 137,939, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, card collectors duel to the death, schoolyard bullying has a tendency to escalate, and the only science is political science. 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 4,616th in the world and 21st in Canada for Highest Poor Incomes, with 137,939.77 Standard Monetary Units.
