Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Existentialist Union of Olytemis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.86 billion Olytemisites 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calliope. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Olytemisian economy, worth 169 trillion whisks 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 91,042 whisks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Olytemis's national animal is the fandom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hellenic Polytheism.

Olytemis is ranked 161,331st in the world and 8,711th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -14.21 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
