Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 16.036 billion Oriconians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized 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 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriconian economy, worth a remarkable 5,822 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 363,061 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million sovereign battlesuits, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, Ashan spends billions upgrading public transport, and children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife. 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 616th in the world and 14th in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.91 Years.
