Oversized Operativez 8

Population1.374 billion


The Protectorate of Oversized Operativez 8 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 1.374 billion Oversized Operativez 8ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Oversized Operativez 8ian economy, worth 11.7 trillion Organs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 8,486 Organs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oversized Operativez 8's national animal is the Mussel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oversized Operativez 8 is ranked 282,076th in the world and 7,131st in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 41.44 on the Human Development Index.
