The United Dynastic Republic of Opstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lil Oppy Boi with an iron fist, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.129 billion Opstanians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Youpon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Opstanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,630 trillion shards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 317,994 shards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,534,168 per year while the poor average 38,321, a ratio of 40.0 to 1.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, for just a few extra shards Opstanians can get new driving records with their new cars, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-shard charge on their phone bill, and war criminals are given full state funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Opstan's national animal is the quelea, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dyanism.

Opstan is ranked 2,561st in the world and 20th in Yuno for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 154.83 on the Hayek Index.
