OPEC is an organization comprised of net oil exporting countries and stands for the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. Twelve countries are currently part of OPEC including Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Qatar, Ecuador, Libya, United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Nigeria, and Angola. In order to join, a country must both share the goals and interests of other member nations and be a net exporter of crude petroleum. In addition, that country must be voted in by at least three fourths of current member nations and all five original founding nations.
Well, you get lucky and find that the country you run has enormous oil deposits beneath the earth. You also cannot be a superpower, like Russia for example, because then you might put the othery OPEC countries in jeopardy. The point of OPEC is for developing countries to band together and protect their interests (i.e., oil) against historically exploitative and powerful countries.
