The Empire of Whole Oregon is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 467 million Oregonians 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Whole Oregonian economy, worth 11.4 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 24,338 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, interest in globalism never flags, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, and some paycheques only arrive every 12 to 24 weeks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whole Oregon's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
