Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of The Independent Ohio Valley is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.693 billion Independents enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Independence. The average income tax rate is 35.2%.

The all-consuming Independent economy, worth 155 trillion Dollops a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,095 Dollops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Kestrels are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 275th in Balder and 5,689th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 25 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
