The Free Land of Okarine is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by La Direktoraro with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 912 million Okarineans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfino. The average income tax rate is 48.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Okarinean economy, worth 88.1 trillion Libs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,630 Libs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, large sections of Okarine have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Okarine's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Okarine is ranked 74,708th in the world and 16th in Evergreen Conifer for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,767.08 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
