The Computer-simulated society of Othan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by an Undead Reincarnation of River Phoenix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.309 billion Oths hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cilos. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Othanian economy, worth 909 trillion Cryptobucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,428 Cryptobucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Othan's national animal is the Othanian Sea Trouticorn, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Othan is ranked 202,198th in the world and 7,102nd in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -5.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
