The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 10.621 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 Book Publishing industry.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, property values in suburbs have nosedived after the middle class were forced to live next door to ethnic minorities, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 618th in the Pacific and 17,161st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.438 Stalins.
