The Grand Nation of Ovstylap is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.986 billion Ovstylapians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ovstylapian economy, worth a remarkable 1,263 trillion rubles a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,267 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, the blood on the hands of Leader may not be metaphorical, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and citizen radio operators agree that the certification test can open up a world of hertz. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ovstylap's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ovstylap is ranked 96,609th in the world and 16th in Northern Utopia for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,632.36 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
