The Federal Republic of Oometz is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President McCormick with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.851 billion Oometzians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sekkandria. The average income tax rate is 4.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Oometzian economy, worth a remarkable 4,277 trillion kinas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 332,883 kinas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
A historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Oometz's national animal is the raggiana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.
