Union of the Oriental States

LeaderPresident Han Gyeol

AnimalWhite Tiger

The Federation of Union of the Oriental States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Han Gyeol with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 2.298 billion Orientals 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hanul. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 268 trillion Hwans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,788 Hwans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Union of the Oriental States. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union of the Oriental States's national animal is the White Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Neo-Confucianism.

Union of the Oriental States is ranked 187,921st in the world and 8,186th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.94 Obesity Rate.
