The Epic collecting nation of Wopruthien is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Billy Talent with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.979 billion Wopiens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underground Play Toy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wopruthienian economy, worth a remarkable 5,363 trillion irishes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 191,697 irishes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory, foreign livestock are offered asylum, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wopruthien's national animal is the monster guinea pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the heady heights of Tran-duc.

Wopruthien is ranked 34,991st in the world and 2nd in The Kodiak Republic for Nudest, with 200.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
