The Democratic Republic of Occoron is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Victoria Vigo with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.421 billion Occoronians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Commerce and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montevideo. The average income tax rate is 72%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.
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 -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Occoron's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.
