OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 10.999 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.

The recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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 3,893rd in the Pacific and 106,603rd in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -19 Dawkins.
