The Rogue Nation of War and Oppression is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dictator For Life Lord Phoenix with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.44 billion War and Oppressionites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Domination City. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The enormous but inefficient War and Oppressionian economy, worth a remarkable 6,911 trillion slaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 184,604 slaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, Dictator For Life Lord Phoenix signs the laws but abides by none of them, breaking rocks in the hot sun now involves using your head, and couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. War and Oppression's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Death Worship.

War and Oppression is ranked 225,257th in the world and 3rd in The Empire for Most Politically Free, scoring 7.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
