The Computer-simulated society of Othan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by an Undead Reincarnation of River Phoenix with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.451 billion Oths hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cilos. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Othanian economy, worth 397 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 115,172 Cryptobucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Cryptobuck treacle machine, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. 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 159,798th in the world and 5,003rd in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -163.97 on the Hayek Index.
