The Thank you Guys of Owlograd is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Owlbrecht Hootington with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.246 billion Owls 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 The Owls Nest. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Owl economy, worth 101 trillion Owl Gifs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 81,115 Owl Gifs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. 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, and its national religion is Owlism.

Owlograd is ranked 6,621st in the world and 94th in Europe for Rudest Citizens, with 130 Insults Per Minute.
