The Grand Overkingdom of Sheeptopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Imperator Ovan XXII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.734 billion Sheeptopians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ovinian Magnus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sheeptopian economy, worth an astonishing 20,560 trillion noofnards a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 575,364 noofnards, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,389,065 per year while the poor average 5,177, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, the recently bereaved have plenty of time to mourn during their incarcerations, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sheeptopia's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Emperor Cult.

Sheeptopia is ranked 157,883rd in the world and 294th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Politically Free, scoring 14.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
