Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 15.376 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 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 5,501 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 357,826 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. 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 80,687th in the world and 5,419th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,000.92 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
