The Electorate of United Federated States of Omega is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Elector Primo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.51 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, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 9.4%.

The strong Omegean economy, worth a remarkable 1,244 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 118,451 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 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 39,025th in the world and 1,201st in the South Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 19.87 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
