THE Ophelia OF SYA

Population610 million


The Empire of THE Ophelia OF SYA is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 610 million Ophelians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ophelia OF SYAian economy, worth 53.9 trillion YUAN a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,314 YUAN, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. THE Ophelia OF SYA's national animal is the 雷纳德, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

THE Ophelia OF SYA is ranked 29,800th in the world and 881st in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.38 Bank.
