The Democratic Republic of Occoron is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Victoria Vigo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.367 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.
The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Occoronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,174 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 140,392 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.
