Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Ecclesiocracy of Holy Oranz is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Priestess Kanon with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 2.193 billion Oranzians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akhet. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranzian economy, worth 534 trillion haels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 243,743 haels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, builders across Holy Oranz are blocked up with orders for new public loos, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Oranz's national animal is the Royal Crested Sea Mesc, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sheutism.

Holy Oranz is ranked 34,545th in the world and 1,550th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,746.75 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
