The Oppressing Oppressers of Oppressiah is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Brother's Big Brother with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, prohibition of alcohol, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.694 billion Oppressians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grovelopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Oppressian economy, worth a remarkable 5,119 trillion Rocks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 259,936 Rocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oppressiah's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cowering before Supreme Overlord.

Oppressiah is ranked 270,253rd in the world and 2nd in Beachfront Nuclear Hellscape for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -324.2 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
