The Democratic Republic of Occoron is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Victoria Vigo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.88 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, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montevideo. The average income tax rate is 58.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Occoronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,695 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 142,723 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
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.
