The Autonomous Police State of Optiplex 580 is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by ᚻosef řalin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 11.167 billion Optiplexans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of řalingrad. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Optiplexan economy, worth 334 trillion optiplexan dollars 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Soda Sales, Tourism, and Information Technology. 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 29,992 optiplexan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending is on the increase, shanty towns of homeless immigrants are the ideal recruiting ground for terrorist organisations, the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Optiplex 580's national animal is the radroach, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is řalinism.

Optiplex 580 is ranked 90,655th in the world and 1st in Where the future is behind the moon for Lowest Crime Rates, with 64.13 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
