The Protectorate of Owl Pellets is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its restrictive gun laws. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 14.342 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Social Welfare, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Owl Pellets City. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Owl Pellets's national animal is the owl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the owl pellet.

Owl Pellets is ranked 831st in Europeia and 121,986th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -15 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
