The Constitutional Monarchy of Ovkianos is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 250 million Ovkianosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kunar. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ovkianosian economy, worth 10.7 trillion Ovkianosian baht a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,904 Ovkianosian baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, Ovkianos has designated Kunar as its capital city, most ambassadors from Ovkianos retire only a few years after being appointed, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ovkianos's national animal is the red mountain wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ovkianos is ranked 137,558th in the world and 5,035th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 47.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
