The Electorate of United Federated States of Omega is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Elector Primo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.04 billion Omegeans 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 Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 9.3%.

The very strong Omegean economy, worth a remarkable 1,200 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,544 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, the nation's biggest export is stupidity, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Federated States of Omega's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

United Federated States of Omega is ranked 35,214th in the world and 1,046th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 70.73 on the Human Development Index.
