Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 15.205 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 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 5,420 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 major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 356,483 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, and the endangered saltwater humpback lynx is only seen in captivity programs. 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 6,225th in the world and 160th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 5,872.82 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
