The Federated Worlds of Olimpiada is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Alexios Cyrenacius with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.938 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, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Three Leaders. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Olimpiadan economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 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 152,116 drachmas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 615,519 per year while the poor average 25,058, a ratio of 24.6 to 1.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar. 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 19,116th in the world and 397th in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 249.26 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
