The Constitutional Monarchy of Ovkianos is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 306 million Ovkianosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kunar. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ovkianosian economy, worth 16.7 trillion Ovkianosian baht a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,693 Ovkianosian baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, the Ovkianos Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and one can walk from one side of Kunar to the other without setting foot on Ovkianosian soil. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 166,526th in the world and 6,239th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.47 Obesity Rate.
