The Pilotipality of Osheiga is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Wilbur with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, soft-spoken computers, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.367 billion Oshʎgans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xovatova. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Oshʎgan economy, worth 606 trillion Nook Miles Tickets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 180,043 Nook Miles Tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Xovatova Times is sold out, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osheiga's national animal is the dodo bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Church of the Flying Dodo.

Osheiga is ranked 225,954th in the world and 5,702nd in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -2.83 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
