|Animal||Blue Footed Booby|
The Armed Republic of Orangino is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 45 million Oranginoans 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Oranginoan economy, worth 1.49 trillion Doubloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,160 Doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Feeling like a winner comes at a price, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget. Crime is totally unknown. Orangino's national animal is the Blue Footed Booby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
