The Confederal People's Republic of Santa Ofelia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by El Presidente with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 1.886 billion Santa Ofelians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cuidad de Sierra Antonio. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Santa Ofelian economy, worth 271 trillion Ofelian Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,992 Ofelian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, tourists visit Santa Ofelia to mass-moon Santa Ofelian politicians, the government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, and international commentators accuse the nation of aggressive cultural imperialism. Crime is totally unknown. Santa Ofelia's national animal is the Toucan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Santa Ofelia is ranked 48,268th in the world and 711th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 271 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
