The Federal Republic of Opplandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President William Charlesfort with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.637 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 relatively small 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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Opplandianic economy, worth a remarkable 3,221 trillion O-Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,229 O-Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, President William Charlesfort's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime is totally unknown. Opplandia's national animal is the Bullet Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Opplandia is ranked 86,970th in the world and 132nd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,466.48 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
