The Syndicalist Afrikan Union of Greater Ottonna is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Premier Max Schachtman with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.276 billion Afrikaners have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Afrikaner economy, worth 750 trillion Union Pound sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 229,014 Union Pound sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, bike rage is all the rage, volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Greater Ottonna has found 7 easter eggs), and soldiers are issued comics about superheroes punching unflattering caricatures of their enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Ottonna's national animal is the African Springbok, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greater Ottonna is ranked 3,223rd in the world and 2nd in Official European Union for Most Developed, scoring 95.91 on the Human Development Index.
