The Federation of Okranzistan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Michael Semiakov von Okranzigrad with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.584 billion Okranzistanians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okranzigrad. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Okranzistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,534 trillion Okranzis Dolars 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 232,996 Okranzis Dolars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Yellow Eagledogs' dominate wildlife preserves, politicians look weirdly alike, and political detractors refer to Michael Semiakov von Okranzigrad as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Okranzistan's national animal is the Yellow Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Okranzismus.

Okranzistan is ranked 3,414th in the world and 161st in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 635.85 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
