The Republic of The Happily Oppressed is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mega Super Sexy Transformation Sequence with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.142 billion Happily Oppressedians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delicious. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Happily Oppressedian economy, worth 108 trillion Celebacies a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,680 Celebacies, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Happily Oppressed's national animal is the Giant Blue Footed Booby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Happily Oppressed is ranked 73,086th in the world and 3,934th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,835.8 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
