The Dominion of Ovesa is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 414 million Ovesans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Ovesan economy, worth 3.00 trillion argents 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 7,240 argents, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ovesa's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ovesa is ranked 61,553rd in the world and 2,256th in the Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.5 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
