The Federal Republic of Opeshek is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 219 million Oapeshes 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.0%.

The strong Opeshekian economy, worth 13.3 trillion Dollar Bills a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 60,605 Dollar Bills, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 176,090 per year while the poor average 16,508, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Opeshek are famed for their reasonable volume levels, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Opeshek's national animal is the Coyote.

Opeshek is ranked 161,339th in the world and 102nd in League of Sovereign Nations for Largest Governments, scoring 9.75 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
