Nova Orontes

Population604 million


The Republic of Nova Orontes is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 604 million Nova Orontians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Public Transport. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The very strong Nova Orontesian economy, worth 43.9 trillion Díenaris a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is 72,675 Díenaris, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 310,668 per year while the poor average 10,907, a ratio of 28.5 to 1.

The government is slowly introducing social welfare programs, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, relatives of recent award winners find their trophies make stylish urns, and fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nova Orontes's national animal is the Robot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nova Orontes is ranked 75,441st in the world and 42nd in Greater Dienstad for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.02 Bank.
