The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.748 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 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 4,119 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 350,614 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The lynx is a protected species, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Oriconia's border. Crime is totally unknown. Oriconia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oriconia is ranked 4,121st in the Pacific and 114,955th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
