The Thank you Guys of Owlograd is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Owlbrecht Hootington with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.119 billion Owls hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Owls Nest. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Owl economy, worth 90.9 trillion Owl Gifs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 81,208 Owl Gifs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Owlograd's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Owlograd is ranked 236,964th in the world and 1,071st in Europe for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
