The Republic of Oqmet is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primary Councilor Imiran Lüčivob with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.992 billion Oqmeti are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dolovasď. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Oqmeti economy, worth 102 trillion pilqs 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. 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 51,341 pilqs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and hordes of tourists are ruining the environment. Crime is totally unknown. Oqmet's national animal is the mourningbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Oqmet is ranked 232,716th in the world and 57th in Wysteria for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
