Development and Preparation
The games took place at around 15 sporting venues in Dolphinas, a large number for the city. Because of this, an additional 10 venues had to be constructed, half of which are temporary buildings and will be disassembled after the events. The largest of these venues can contain around 80,000. This venue will also host the opening and closing ceremonies.
The transportation system of Dolphinas got a massive revamp prior to the events, including the construction of a new subway line and the expansion of the airport terminals. Many roads were also widened, including Interland 1, the main route into Dolphinas, which was widened from 6 lanes to 10 lanes. Furthermore, the water, sewage, electricity, and communications systems were expanded.
Ticketing prices were also announced in August 2014, which were sold Amatarian Coins, Dauroes, Margatian Dollars, and Varoes. Starting April 2015, tickets were also sold in Acadian Dollars. In total, 6.5 million tickets were sold. Prices range from 30 Varoes to 3,000 Varoes.

Nations that didn't participate
The opening ceremony took place at Stanling Stadium on the 5th of August. The event featured parts of Snowinian history and culture. This was then followed by the Parade of Nations. Following the handover of the Olympic flag from the Snowdon mayor Damian Ilkovich to Dolphinas Mayor Slidur de Corovou, the torch, which had made it's way from the Geek Empire, visited all Snowinian provinces excluding Penland, was used to light the cauldron by Snowinian President Simon McClark, officially opening the games.

Sorted by order of gold medals.
Because the Antarctic War on Terrorism was going on just a mere few hundreds of miles away in Penland, one of the main concerns was terrorism. The Dolphinas Police Department, along with the Snowinian Informative Service did a mass search city-wide for potential terrorists, which arrested 15. In addition, 5 terrorists were arrested at Dolphinas International Airport with connections to Little Penland. The games have been under heavy security and officials have formed evacuation plans. Despite the concerns a terrorist attack may occur, none happened and the Olympic games went largely according to plan.
The War on Terror and lack of allies across the world let to an increase in xenophobia and isolationism among the Snowinns and so officials feared there might be racist incidents - indeed, when Ed Island's participants came out on the path during the athletes' parade they were massively heckled and some anti-Ed chants were heard, such as "Dead Over Ed". The Ed athletes later commented that 'we felt grossly uncomfortable walking in a country that once held us under occupation and still refuses to accept the fact they lost us'. President McClark later condemned the hecklers and stated that there is "no place for xenophobia and intolerance in the United Provinces".
UP Athletes at the Parade
When it was the turn for the United Provinces to be the final (since they were the host) country to participate in the parade the team shocked everybody by waving the Snowinn blue-white-green horizontal flag instead of the new blue-white-orange vertical standard, and around 250 of the 311 athletes waved the Snowinn flags instead of the UP flag. It was later reported that there was an incident days prior to the parade - there was a feud between the United Provinces participants over the clothes they would wear at the parade - the original idea was for them all to wear an orange jacket and blue pants, but some people objected and wanted to wear a half-blue-half-white jacket and green pants.
The feud increased over the weeks and the team came to a compromise to wear a half-blue-half-white jacket and red pants, the colors that came to represent all Snowic peoples (Ruscans, Snowinns, Pennes, Stoles, Ucryingians and Puffepelagese).
It was announced that the official 2016 Summer Olympics official anthem is called "The Fire" by Andrew Gonzalez.
