The Principality of Ofira is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 255 million Ofirans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 34.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ofiran economy, worth 18.8 trillion Ofiran Pessetas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,831 Ofiran Pessetas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ofira's national animal is the Ofiran Peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ofira is ranked 122,097th in the world and 5,453rd in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 339.57 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
