The Republic of Obrizaluvreesudortopia is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.751 billion Obrizaluvreesudortopians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Obrizaluvreesudortopian economy, worth 919 trillion deniers a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,943 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Obrizaluvreesudortopia's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Obrizaluvreesudortopia is ranked 204,111th in the world and 7,130th in Balder for Safest, scoring 6.15 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
