The Federal Republic of Opplandia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President William Charlesfort with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.642 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, 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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Opplandianic economy, worth a remarkable 3,222 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 219,853rd in the world and 474th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -13.02 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
