The United Dynastic Republic of Opstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Destine Lez Wichimire with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.446 billion Opstanians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Youpon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Opstanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,819 trillion shards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 334,128 shards, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Opstanian restaurants, many friends and relatives of Destine Lez Wichimire have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, elections have recently been reintroduced to Opstan, and seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Opstan's national animal is the quelea, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dyanism.

Opstan is ranked 31,473rd in the world and 1,608th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,551.1 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
