Ourequa

Population50 million

The Republic of Ourequa is a large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 50 million Ourequans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ourequan economy, worth 1.82 trillion djotts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 36,409 djotts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ourequa's national animal is the hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ourequa is ranked 160,398th in the world and 16th in Fediverse for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 28.96 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
