The Disappointment of Olytemis is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.173 billion Olytemisites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doge. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Olytemisian economy, worth 401 trillion whisks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 126,618 whisks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Olytemis's national animal is the froggit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is meme philosophy.

Olytemis is ranked 81,362nd in the world and 4,529th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,803.65 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
