The People's Republic of Ohiyo is a massive, genial nation, ruled by John Brown with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.728 billion Ohiyans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canton. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ohiyan economy, worth 806 trillion dollars 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 216,308 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime is totally unknown. Ohiyo's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ohiyo is ranked 3,033rd in the world and 144th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 17,508.76 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
