Holy Oranz

Population6.618 billion

LeaderHigh Priestess Kanon

AnimalRoyal Crested Sea Mesc

The Ecclesiocracy of Holy Oranz is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by High Priestess Kanon with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 6.618 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 2,435 trillion haels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 368,041 haels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. 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 3,779th in the world and 130th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,629.17 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
