The Avian Empire of Accipitridia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kaisen Ikn Ka'Sakhur with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, vat-grown people, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.355 billion Avians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiyessia Nitero. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Accipitridian economy, worth a remarkable 1,155 trillion Otiderks 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. 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 344,436 Otiderks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Accipitridia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accipitridia's national animal is the Double-Headed Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Accipitrid Orthodoxy.

Accipitridia is ranked 226,783rd in the world and 238th in Institute of Cellulose for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.73 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
