The Greater Ohio Valley

Population16.298 billion

LeaderTravis Wood


The Commonwealth of The Greater Ohio Valley is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Travis Wood with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 16.298 billion Ohioans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbus. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ohioan economy, worth a remarkable 3,221 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 197,649 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, and the lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greater Ohio Valley's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Greater Ohio Valley is ranked 187,878th in the world and 350th in Thaecia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
