The Beautiful Nation of 0penland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Theodore S with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.429 billion Openpersons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitown. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Openlandian economy, worth 94.2 trillion Opendollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,941 Opendollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, the government has forked out millions on an unmade bed that is apparently East Lebatuckese "art", the Openlandian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 0penland's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

0penland is ranked 108,776th in the world and 39th in Enadia for Most Primitive, scoring -37.64 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
