OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate population of 10.805 billion Oriconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashan. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, Ashan is a police state during international summits, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and the lynx is a protected species. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the sovereign.

Oriconia is ranked 2nd in the Pacific and 85th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 438 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
