The Commonwealth of Ontarin is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 8.979 billion Ontarinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Social Policy, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 30.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Ontarinian economy, worth 36.1 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,025 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, the government is reining in public spending, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Ontarin's national animal is the bison.

Ontarin is ranked 245,184th in the world and 315th in Spiritus for Most Developed, scoring 39.49 on the Human Development Index.
