The Troisième République of Opalaland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Laura Roslin with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 25.584 billion Opalalandais hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bibliotheque. The average income tax rate is 15.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Opalalandais economy, worth a remarkable 5,973 trillion opiates a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 233,488 opiates, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Opalaland, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, and adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Opalaland's national animal is the owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Opalaland is ranked 1,478th in the world and 3rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Economic Output, with 5,973 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
