The People's Republic of Opressed North Continent is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by All Opressive Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, aversion to nipples, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.416 billion Opressed North Continentians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petrusciian. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Opressed North Continentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,125 trillion Alohas a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 175,350 Alohas, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing All Opressive Leader to cartoon bears, bailiffs must face down a fusillade of depleted uranium rounds, the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Opressed North Continent" on tails, and citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Opressed North Continent's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is All Opressive Leader.

Opressed North Continent is ranked 13,365th in the world and 3rd in Lasagna for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,805.84 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
