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 notable for its soft-spoken computers, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 14.649 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 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 5,196 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 Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 354,758 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. 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 175,014th in the world and 8,452nd in the Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 35.08 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
