OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate population of 10.028 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashan. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, abortions are routinely performed in Oriconia's hospitals, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and the government spends millions of sovereigns every year prosecuting spammers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oriconia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the sovereign.

Oriconia is ranked 1,101st in the Pacific and 28,093rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1 Stalins.
