The Cerulean Peaceloving Kingdom of Olofin is a massive, safe nation, ruled by His Royal Majesty King Olofin with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.83 billion Olofinians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abik. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Olofinian economy, worth 274 trillion e-Ayoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 149,728 e-Ayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gambling is outlawed, the NHS is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Olofin's national animal is the Abik Valley Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ijnabism.

Olofin is ranked 202,203rd in the world and 9,042nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -12.65 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
