The Republic of South Olpen is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 580 million Olpenese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constitution City. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Olpenese economy, worth 44.9 trillion Olpenese Bills a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,479 Olpenese Bills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

South Olpen has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, military spending is on the increase, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Olpen's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Olpen is ranked 46,594th in the world and 1,291st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,635.78 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
