The Democratic Republic of Ootasa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 240 million Ootasans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ootasan economy, worth 9.17 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 38,219 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One complaint of Ootasa's new periodic table is it's easy to confuse fearlessleaderium with gloriousleaderium, one does not simply walk into the tundra, Ootasans are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ootasa's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ootasa is ranked 46,234th in the world and 2,236th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 3.54 Bank.
