Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 16.619 billion Oriconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashan. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 6,087 trillion sovereigns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 366,282 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, and statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oriconia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oriconia is ranked 619th in the world and 13th in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.1 Years.
