Gran Oquendo

Population1.533 billion

LeaderAryeh Rebekah Shimun


The New Yishuv of Gran Oquendo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aryeh Rebekah Shimun with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.533 billion Oquendans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nineveh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.3%.

The very strong Oquendan economy, worth 80.6 trillion Ymineis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 52,558 Ymineis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 192,139 per year while the poor average 10,197, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, Aryeh Rebekah Shimun has just been declared ruler of Gran Oquendo in an international press conference, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and Pharsia has been named as Gran Oquendo's national religion. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gran Oquendo's national animal is the Lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Pharsia.

Gran Oquendo is ranked 85,143rd in the world and 1,167th in The East Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 192,139 Standard Monetary Units.
