The Foederati of Olimpiada is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Alexios Cyrenacius with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.377 billion Olimpiadans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Triumvirate. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Olimpiadan economy, worth a remarkable 1,457 trillion drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,471 drachmas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 644,691 per year while the poor average 24,579, a ratio of 26.2 to 1.

9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Olimpiada's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Olimpiada is ranked 65,825th in the world and 22nd in Cynosure for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 73.84 Workforce Participation Rate.
