Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Expansive Dominion of The Occidental Peoples is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by William the Just Ruler of the Occidents with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.062 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 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Occidentalian economy, worth 342 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. Average income is an impressive 165,868 Solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Only criminals carry guns, an eye for an eye leaves The Occidental Peoples blind, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 10,552nd in the world and 35th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.78 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
