The Federal Republic of Oometz is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President McCormick with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, cheerful population of 10.796 billion Oometzians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sekkandria. The average income tax rate is 9.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oometzian economy, worth a remarkable 3,471 trillion kinas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 321,534 kinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public parks are littered with cigarette butts, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and the countryside is shrouded by wind farms. Crime is totally unknown. Oometz's national animal is the raggiana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oometz is ranked 842nd in the world and 17th in the West Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 932.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
