OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 11.147 billion Oriconians 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.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, soldiers are equipped with multi-million sovereign battlesuits, and sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself. 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 1st in the Pacific and 339th in the world for Best Weather, with 782 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
