Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.104 billion Oriconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, 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 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 4,251 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 351,252 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Oriconia, and concussed lynxball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime is totally unknown. Oriconia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oriconia is ranked 25th in the Pacific and 1,955th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 62 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
