The Computer-simulated society of Othan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by an Undead Reincarnation of River Phoenix with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.33 billion Oths hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cilos. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Othanian economy, worth 768 trillion Cryptobucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,384 Cryptobucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Oths won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Othan's national animal is the Othanian Sea Trouticorn, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Othan is ranked 11,278th in the world and 469th in Lazarus for Nudest, with 218.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
