|Leader||Head Minister Xeja Hallirius|
The United Provinces of Ontorisa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Head Minister Xeja Hallirius with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.13 billion Ontorisans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calvisburg. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Ontorisan economy, worth a remarkable 1,606 trillion Eckels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,609 Eckels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Large sections of Ontorisa have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Ontorisa, and the government is funneling billions into Cape Ontorisa following the shuttle crash. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ontorisa's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
