OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 10.933 billion Oriconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashan. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Oriconia after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, genetic researchers have been expelled, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the sovereign.

Oriconia is ranked 13th in the Pacific and 526th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 27 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
