The Participist Confederation of Otryium is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.045 billion Otryians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Otryian economy, worth 737 trillion social credits 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 significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,142 social credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Otryium City, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, and the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending. Crime is totally unknown. Otryium's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Otryium is ranked 13,273rd in the world and 32nd in Libertarian Socialist Confederation for Most Income Equality, scoring 79.05 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
