The Republic of Olongon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ollah with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.492 billion Olongonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olontopia. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Olongonian economy, worth 725 trillion kilos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 207,784 kilos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen, the Olongon Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Olongon's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Olongon is ranked 3,275th in the world and 108th in the South Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 90.32 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
