Regional Influence: Auxiliary

Location: Niamark



Population2.468 billion



The Empire of Olubnan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by 3 with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.468 billion Olubnanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romance. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Olubnanian economy, worth 366 trillion lire 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 148,546 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Olubnan's national animal is the donkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is S.

Olubnan is ranked 7,469th in the world and 1st in Niamark for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 8,656.81 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
