The Grand Technocracy of Owlograd is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by PM Magnus Valkahal with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 819 million Owlogradians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fyreheim. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Owlogradian economy, worth 66.1 trillion Crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 80,655 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Owlograd's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Owlograd is ranked 8,474th in the world and 128th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 42.33 Bank.
