Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.457 billion Oriconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 4,433 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 355,866 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown. Oriconia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oriconia is ranked 6,708th in the Pacific and 144,165th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -22 on the Hayek Index.
