Omnistria third

Population3.689 billion


The Republic of Omnistria third is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, vat-grown people, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.689 billion Omnistria thirdians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Omnistria thirdian economy, worth 419 trillion strigas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 113,636 strigas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 475,141 per year while the poor average 17,714, a ratio of 26.8 to 1.

Birdsong in the mountains has to be loud enough to drown out nearby jackhammers, the nation's "surprisingly chill" military is renowned for its horrendous war crimes, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and it is a silent spring in Omnistria third. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Omnistria third's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Omnistria third is ranked 162,886th in the world and 8th in strigiformes for Most Influential, scoring 56 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
