Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Ecclesiocracy of Holy Oranz is a massive, genial nation, ruled by High Priestess Kanon with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 1.846 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 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranzian economy, worth 426 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 231,186 haels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", sections of the police receive paramilitary training, abortions are routinely performed in Holy Oranz's hospitals, and commemoration of the Great The North Pacific War costs almost as much as the war itself. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 25,437th in the world and 1,110th in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14,570.93 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
