The Republic of Olongon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ollah with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.702 billion Olongonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olontopia. The average income tax rate is 6.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Olongonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,342 trillion kilos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 285,602 kilos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, new urban roads are threatening city parks, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Olongonian Moonshine", and nose plugs are the latest Olongonian fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Olongon's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Olongon is ranked 1,178th in the world and 10th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 119 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
