Doctors Orvos

Population2.343 billion

LeaderGrand Doctor Alexander von Likaryu


The Medical Techno-Federal Realm of Doctors Orvos is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Doctor Alexander von Likaryu with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.343 billion Orvosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Besigheid. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Orvosian economy, worth 113 trillion Meddygs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 48,499 Meddygs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Orvosian Values' advise against being proud of Doctors Orvos, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doctors Orvos's national animal is the Tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Doctors Orvos is ranked 197,435th in the world and 343rd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.8 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
