The Oppressing Oppressers of Oppressiah is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Brother's Big Brother with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.315 billion Oppressians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grovelopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Oppressian economy, worth a remarkable 4,380 trillion Rocks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 252,988 Rocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, and it's scientifically provable that Oppressian guys don't know how to make a woman happy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oppressiah's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cowering before Supreme Overlord.

Oppressiah is ranked 17,010th in the world and 1st in Beachfront Nuclear Hellscape for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 16.32 Bank.
