The Kingdom of Onirie is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 567 million Onirieans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onnjirie. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Oniriean economy, worth 57.8 trillion Onirs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 102,006 Onirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, they say that Leader's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, and embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Onirie's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Onirie is ranked 16,160th in the world and 463rd in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 91 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
