The Federal Republic of Opplandia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President William Charlesfort with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.541 billion Opplandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sterling City. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Opplandianic economy, worth a remarkable 2,843 trillion O-Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 246,422 O-Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, going on a diet invalidates your passport, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, and there's no representation without taxation. Crime is totally unknown. Opplandia's national animal is the Cassowary, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Opplandia is ranked 5,013th in the world and 9th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,048.14 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
