Holy Oranz

Population8.58 billion

LeaderHigh Priestess Kanon

AnimalRoyal Crested Sea Mesc

The Ecclesiocracy of Holy Oranz is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by High Priestess Kanon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 8.58 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, socially-minded, 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 3,453 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 402,456 haels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High Priestess Kanon's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. 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 137,527th in the world and 6,458th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -1.61 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
