Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sovereign States of Olthenia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Phanomyang with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.201 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 48.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Olthenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion chelons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 84,543 chelons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Olthenia's national animal is the hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Taoism.

Olthenia is ranked 24,585th in the world and 43rd in Winterfell for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 169.69 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
