|Leader||Prime Minister Michael Stein|
The Crowned Democratic Union of Oppermenia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Michael Stein with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.322 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 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Oppermenian economy, worth 463 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 major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,489 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.
