The Grand Nation of Ovstylap is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.733 billion Ovstylapians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ovstylapian economy, worth 556 trillion rubles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,978 rubles, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pootling steam trains carry delighted tourists and frustrated businessmen from city to city at a snail's pace, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, and indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits. 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 can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Ovstylap is ranked 58,224th in the world and 38th in Northern Utopia for Healthiest Citizens, with 4.74 bananas ingested per day.
