The United Socialist States of Ochain is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 635 million Ochainians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ochainian economy, worth 25.4 trillion Blue Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Average income is 40,010 Blue Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, there's a bright dawn ahead for Ochain, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Ochain City for fear of causing a fuss. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ochain's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ochain is ranked 128,507th in the world and 378th in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -39.47 on the Hayek Index.
