Population1.162 billion


The Republic of Ockhamista is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.162 billion Ockhamistans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.7%.

The all-consuming Ockhamistan economy, worth 109 trillion Petrodollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 94,432 Petrodollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, and members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ockhamista's national animal is the Lamb, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ockhamista is ranked 167,568th in the world and 6,391st in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -120 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
