The Empire of Oyada is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Shokiwe Naragan with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.017 billion Oyadans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oyadato. The average income tax rate is 71.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Oyadan economy, worth a remarkable 5,033 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 179,662 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, Emperor Shokiwe Naragan's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oyada's national animal is the airhippo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is sun-worship.

Oyada is ranked 2,236th in the world and 2nd in Concordat of Phoenix for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 17,963.8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
