The Return of Owlograd is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Owl Jr with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.089 billion Owloes hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of OwloCity. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Owlish economy, worth 172 trillion Glazed Doughnuts a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 82,494 Glazed Doughnuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Owlograd's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Owlism.

Owlograd is ranked 32,852nd in the world and 442nd in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 74.26 law-abiding acts per hour.
