The Freiheit of Othelos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 14.852 billion Othelosians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freistadt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Othelosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,761 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 185,920 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 654,636 per year while the poor average 38,232, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

Rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, Othelos's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget. Crime is totally unknown. Othelos's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Othelos is ranked 16,332nd in the world and 11th in International Northwestern Union for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 14.29 Bank.
