The Confederal People's Republic of Santa Ofelia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by El Presidente with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.22 billion Santa Ofelians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cuidad de Sierra Antonio. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Santa Ofelian economy, worth 331 trillion Ofelian Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,347 Ofelian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, the legal minefield around ownership of fiction has demolished the publishing industry, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and Santa Ofelia's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown. Santa Ofelia's national animal is the Toucan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Santa Ofelia is ranked 5,787th in the world and 177th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.23 on the Human Development Index.
