The Republic of Oqmet is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primary Councilor Imiran Lüčivob with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, national health service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.225 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 large, 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 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Oqmeti economy, worth 94.8 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 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 42,614 pilqs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every conceivable scenic location has been completely booked by couples desperate to marry, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, and all beauty contests have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Oqmet's national animal is the mourningbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Oqmet is ranked 189,008th in the world and 50th in Wysteria for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 47.8 Whatever.
