The Rogue Nation of -Ocelot- is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.14 billion Ocelotian have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lutece. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Ocelotian economy, worth 545 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 76,438 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Ocelot-'s national animal is the Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
