The Federal Republic of Oturia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jane Weston with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.439 billion Oturians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunik City. The average income tax rate is 30.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Oturian economy, worth 132 trillion Vecs a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,084 Vecs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, teachers label difficult children as "somebody else's problem" before expelling them, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and saying "don't do anything that Jane Weston wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oturia's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Terra.

Oturia is ranked 41,010th in the world and 140th in The Western Isles for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 2,133.6 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
