The Vampire of The O C is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jason Partyka with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.086 billion O Cians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.7%.

The frighteningly efficient O Cian economy, worth 258 trillion Gold Bars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 124,045 Gold Bars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 400,899 per year while the poor average 29,005, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Skyscrapers get built in just days, Jason Partyka has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, and rumor has it that Jason Partyka has won three lotteries in a row. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The O C's national animal is the vampire, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The O C is ranked 18,220th in the world and 923rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.3 on the Human Development Index.
