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 national health service, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 14.808 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 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 5,257 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 Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 355,067 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Lord Protector Zakath, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. 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 152,106th in the world and 6,466th in the Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 3.8 Whatever.
