The Constitutional Monarchy of Ovkianos is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Esito Nia with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.896 billion Ovkianosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kunar. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ovkianosian economy, worth 156 trillion Ovkianosian baht a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,525 Ovkianosian baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Ovkianosian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ovkianos's national animal is the red mountain wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ovkianos is ranked 231,359th in the world and 7,819th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
