The Sovereign States of Olthenia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Phanomyang with an even hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.98 billion Thénians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cao Lan. The average income tax rate is 25.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Olthenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,755 trillion chelons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 103,409 chelons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and Thénians incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Olthenia's national animal is the hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Taoism.
