The Former UwU's republic of OwOistan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by SpOwOky UwU with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, flagrant waste-dumping, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.682 billion OwOistanis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of *Notices Bulge*. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient OwOistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,966 trillion nuzzles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 341,724 nuzzles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,191,141 per year while the poor average 3,196, a ratio of 998 to 1.

Political radicals send their nuzzles to degree mills for a chance to serve in Parliament, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, the government's policy is 'all pain, no grain', and concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. OwOistan's national animal is the UwU, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is FurDom.

OwOistan is ranked 272,751st in the world and 17,255th in the Rejected Realms for Most Income Equality, scoring 0.1 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
