The Unified People's Federation of South Olpen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chamber Minister Skinner with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.836 billion Olpenese 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constitution City. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Olpenese economy, worth 452 trillion Olpenese Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 159,594 Olpenese Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, industry leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Olpenese emissions at all, the comic book series 'Chamber Minister Skinner and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Olpen's national animal is the Olpenese Gold Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Secularism.

South Olpen is ranked 6,338th in the world and 1st in Order of the White Lotus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 491.33 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
