The Unified Peoples Republic of South Olpen is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chamber Minister Jordan with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.358 billion Olpenese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constitution City. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Olpenese economy, worth 158 trillion Olpenese Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 116,545 Olpenese Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and politicians are often referred to as thesauruses behind their backs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Olpen's national animal is the Olpenese Gold Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Government Secularity.

South Olpen is ranked 81,355th in the world and 3rd in The World Treaty Alliance for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,140.66 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
