The Kingdom of Opatia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Arianna with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate population of 13.355 billion Opatians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Opatian economy, worth a remarkable 1,926 trillion ingots a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,241 ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Superfoods are often seen as supervillains, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Opatia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Opatia is ranked 5,804th in the world and 252nd in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 93.64 on the Human Development Index.
