Holy Oranz

Population10.208 billion

LeaderHigh Priestess Kanon

AnimalRoyal Crested Sea Mesc

The Ecclesiocracy of Holy Oranz is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by High Priestess Kanon with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 10.208 billion Oranzians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akhet. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranzian economy, worth a remarkable 4,321 trillion haels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 423,329 haels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, refugees from other nations are flocking to Holy Oranz's border, and parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Oranz's national animal is the Royal Crested Sea Mesc, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sheutism.

Holy Oranz is ranked 184th in the world and 13th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 8,081.95 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
