Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 11.956 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 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 4,183 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 349,874 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, the new hit series "Oriconia's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, Oriconia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown. Oriconia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oriconia is ranked 4th in the Pacific and 147th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 23 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
