The Republic of Ottralia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Otterlord with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.635 billion Otters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 32.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ottralian economy, worth 462 trillion Otts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,307 Otts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, and Ottralian actors literally work from cradle to grave. Crime is totally unknown. Ottralia's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Ottralia is ranked 17,027th in the world and 568th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,403.77 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
