Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 15.542 billion Oriconians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 5,570 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 358,396 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. 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 26,701st in the world and 1,121st in the Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
