The ProcrastiNation of Oofery is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rick Astley with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.536 billion Ooferians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lazytown. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ooferian economy, worth 868 trillion dead memes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,837 dead memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

News headlines usually include p-values, an underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oofery's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is occasionally lurking on NS.

Oofery is ranked 211,066th in the world and 7,768th in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,871.7 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
