Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Expansive Dominion of The Occidental Peoples is a massive, safe nation, ruled by William the Just Ruler of the Occidents with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.457 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 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Occidentalian economy, worth 407 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 165,652 Solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. 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 34,205th in the world and 69th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,608.34 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
