The Computer-simulated society of Othan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by an Undead Reincarnation of River Phoenix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.891 billion Oths 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 enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cilos. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Othanian economy, worth 707 trillion Cryptobucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,027 Cryptobucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Too many hyper-intelligent chefs can spoil the allegorical broth, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Othan's national animal is the Othanian Sea Trouticorn, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Othan is ranked 5,640th in the world and 309th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.97 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
