Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Expansive Dominion of The Occidental Peoples is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by William the Just Ruler of the Occidents with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.801 billion Occidents are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Babylon. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Occidentalian economy, worth 467 trillion Solaris a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,973 Solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, and grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Occidental Peoples's national animal is the Miniature Schnauzer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Occidental Peoples is ranked 9,576th in the world and 15th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Avoided, scoring 314.88 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
