“All HAIL THE EMPIRE”

The Empire of Oprressotopia is a very large, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 152 million Oprressotopians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Oprressotopian economy, worth 5.72 trillion Oppressedoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 37,613 Oppressedoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, Oprressotopia's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, and it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oprressotopia's national animal is the Oppressed, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
