Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Holy Apostolic Republic of Ossitania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Andrew O'Connor with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 10.799 billion Ossitanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remuralia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.4%.

The large but stagnant Ossitanian economy, worth 389 trillion coronas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,050 coronas, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime is totally unknown. Ossitania's national animal is the pelican, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Ossitania is ranked 168,103rd in the world and 4,450th in Balder for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -133.23 on the Hayek Index.
