The Civil Borderlands of Oleum is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Caliph Tobé F'ox with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.948 billion Oleumcivii hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petroleum City. The average income tax rate is 50.7%.

The very strong Oleumcivilized economy, worth 120 trillion East Asian Monetary Units a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 61,807 East Asian Monetary Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oleum's national animal is the Titanium Grasshopper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Fear of Oil Prices going Negative.

Oleum is ranked 25,846th in the world and 1st in The Coffee Store for Rudest Citizens, with 94.91 Insults Per Minute.
