The Unified Socialist Republic of South Olpen is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chamber Minister Sorit with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.069 billion Olpenese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constitution City. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Olpenese economy, worth 119 trillion Olpenese Bills 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 111,687 Olpenese Bills, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Olpen's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Government Secularity.

South Olpen is ranked 107,966th in the world and 5th in The World Treaty Alliance for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 674.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
