The ProcrastiNation of Oofery is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Robbie Rotten with a fair hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.016 billion Ooferians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lazytown. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ooferian economy, worth 459 trillion dead memes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,243 dead memes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, and sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oofery's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Oofery is ranked 238,432nd in the world and 8,243rd in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -13.45 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
