The Democratic Republic of Occoron is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Victoria Vigo with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.019 billion Occoronians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montevideo. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Occoronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,124 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,176 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, only adults may purchase violent video games, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime is totally unknown. Occoron's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
