The Republic of Olongon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ollah with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.123 billion Olongonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olontopia. The average income tax rate is 81.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Olongonian economy, worth 514 trillion kilos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 242,265 kilos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, and mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Olongon's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Olongon is ranked 59,755th in the world and 2,573rd in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 23.52 Atheism Rate.
