The Crowned Democratic Union of Oppermenia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Michael Stein with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.359 billion Oppermenians 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oppermanson. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oppermenian economy, worth 711 trillion OPPcredits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,742 OPPcredits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A video of Prime Minister Michael Stein wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and the nation has dismantled its entire WMD arsenal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oppermenia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wolvenism.

Oppermenia is ranked 25,950th in the world and 1st in Union of Queer Nations for Nudest, with 213.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
