OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 11.134 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.

Oriconia has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, and the government is seen to favor Catholics. 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 54th in the Pacific and 7,139th in the world for Largest Populations, with 11,134 Capita (millions).
