The Democratic Republic of Operahouse is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Erik Destler with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.312 billion Operahouseans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Operahousean economy, worth 335 trillion Daae Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Soda Sales. Average income is 45,849 Daae Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Operahouse's national animal is the Phantom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Operahouse is ranked 208,259th in the world and 6,762nd in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.5 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
