The Empire of Ourrolious is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 839 million Ourroliousians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapphire City. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ourroliousian economy, worth 59.0 trillion ourroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,349 ourroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chickens roam the streets freely, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ourrolious's national animal is the turritopsis dohrnii, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ourrolious is ranked 48,304th in the world and 579th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,551.11 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
