Holy Oranz

LeaderHigh Priestess Kanon

AnimalRoyal Crested Sea Mesc

The Ecclesiocracy of Holy Oranz is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Priestess Kanon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.643 billion Oranzians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akhet. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranzian economy, worth a remarkable 5,769 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 456,345 haels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and High Priestess Kanon's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success. 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 617th in the world and 27th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 27,866.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
