The Holy Empire of Oieuei3 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander XVI with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.075 billion Oieueians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Spirituality, although Administration, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Civitas Sancti. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Oieuen economy, worth 84.1 trillion Lire 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. 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 40,517 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up, a life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, and many in Oieuei3 are born in the purple. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oieuei3's national animal is the Dunkleosteus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

Oieuei3 is ranked 79,790th in the world and 3,739th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 38.04 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
