The Republic of Off-piste Skier is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.122 billion Off-piste Skierians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and International Aid also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 42.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Off-piste Skierian economy, worth 26.2 trillion snows a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 23,354 snows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, the entire entry for Off-piste Skier in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and motorbike jousters live young and die fast. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Off-piste Skier's national animal is the Skier, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Off-piste Skier is ranked 257,694th in the world and 2nd in Nationstates Ski Resort for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 24,517 Standard Monetary Units.
