The Nomadic Peoples of Oepix is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.5 billion Oepixians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oepix City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Oepixian economy, worth a remarkable 2,593 trillion Blood of our enemieses 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 398,949 Blood of our enemieses, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

The practice of capital punishment proves divisive, hairdressers are forced to use all the tricks of the trade after citizens became required to wear helmets at all times, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oepix's national animal is the bloodlusting pretty pony, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Religion is Heresy.

Oepix is ranked 145,522nd in the world and 5,461st in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 7.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
