Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 15.015 billion Oriconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded 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 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 5,353 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 broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 356,528 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', citizens have never heard foreign radio, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. 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 707th in the world and 12th in the Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 59.16 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
