Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Onixus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Savok The Great with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.059 billion Onixians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oa. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Onixusian economy, worth 355 trillion Haloes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,771 Haloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Onixusian Space Agency, and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Onixus's national animal is the Kodiak Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Onixus is ranked 53,068th in the world and 68th in Wintreath for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,077.25 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
