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 renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 14.496 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 5,127 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 Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 353,715 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory daycare is provided by the government, angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Oriconia's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Oriconia. 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 5,666th in the world and 131st in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 5,830.14 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
