The Defenders of Flying Eagles is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Defender with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.736 billion Eagles have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Defender City. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eagleian economy, worth 562 trillion Paper Defenders a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,136 Paper Defenders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work, libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, and laborers are building walls and making Wezeltonia pay for it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flying Eagles's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Defenderism.

Flying Eagles is ranked 51,654th in the world and 299th in 10000 Islands for Largest Populations, with 5.74 billion Capita.
