The Republic of The Psittacines is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 299 million Psittacinesians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Aves. The average income tax rate is 48.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Psittacinesian economy, worth 23.5 trillion Pellets a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,490 Pellets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Psittacines's national animal is the Sun Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Psittacines is ranked 177,669th in the world and 185th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Economic Output, with 23.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
