Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of The Independent Ohio Valley is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.115 billion Independents hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Independence. The average income tax rate is 69.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Independent economy, worth 236 trillion Dollops a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,739 Dollops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Independent Ohio Valley's national animal is the Kestrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Independent Ohio Valley is ranked 2,537th in Balder and 95,125th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 0 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
