The Democratic Republic of Parti Ouvrier is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the working class with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.535 billion Parti Ouvrierians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ouvrier. The average income tax rate is 80.6%.
The all-consuming Parti Ouvrierian economy, worth 839 trillion the credits a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 66,992 the credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the POBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat. Crime is totally unknown. Parti Ouvrier's national animal is the worker, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
