The Commonwealth of Otrenia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Protector Crair with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.921 billion Otrenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastiyan. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Otrenian economy, worth 116 trillion Otrenian Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,673 Otrenian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Otrenia's national animal is the Doncadine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Halnai.

Otrenia is ranked 211,302nd in the world and 7,237th in Osiris for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.48 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
