Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 15.803 billion Oriconians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashan. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 5,717 trillion sovereigns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 361,821 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and all streets are privately owned toll roads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Oriconia is ranked 2,714th in the world and 62nd in the Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 97.75 Effective Tax Rate.
