The Republic of Ourisio is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.07 billion Ourisians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Comberth. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ourisian economy, worth 628 trillion Cuentas 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,007 Cuentas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ourisio's national animal is the Belted River Kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ourisio is ranked 61,012th in the world and 1st in Independent States Allied Forces for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,429.53 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
