Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederate States of Olthenia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Phanomyang with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.318 billion Thénians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cao Lan. The average income tax rate is 51.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Olthenian economy, worth 986 trillion chelons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 68,877 chelons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, loans are available for students from poor families, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Olthenia's national animal is the hyena, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Taoism.

Olthenia is ranked 161,504th in the world and 59th in Winterfell for Most Primitive, scoring -129.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
