The Federal Republic of Opplandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President William Charlesfort with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.841 billion Opplandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, 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 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Opplandianic economy, worth a remarkable 2,679 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 247,201 O-Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Sterling City, and weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque. Crime is totally unknown. Opplandia's national animal is the Cassowary, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Opplandia is ranked 1,939th in the world and 5th in The Free Nations Region for Most Developed, scoring 96.93 on the Human Development Index.
