Question: What Does oponia Mean?

I often get the question as to what oponia (the name of a software company that I co-founded) means.

Answer:

1. From the spanish oponer: to oppose

2. From Russian Folklore, Oponia (Опонь): a legendary land of great wealth and purity at the edge of the world. "There are no deeds of violence or robberies or other deeds contrary to the law"; "they have no secular government; the spiritual authorities govern the people and all men"; "there is no limit to their gold, silver, precious stones and very costly beads"; "they have war with no one"

I especially like they have war with no one part....
