The Confederate States of Olthenia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Phanomyang with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.632 billion Olthenians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cao Lan. The average income tax rate is 66%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, loans are available for students from poor families, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Olthenia's national animal is the macaw, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Taoism, and its currency is the chelon.

Olthenia is ranked 5,439th in the Rejected Realms and 108,546th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -24 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
