Union of the Oriental States

Population527 million

The Federation of Union of the Oriental States is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 527 million Orientals are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hanul. The average income tax rate is 51.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Oriental economy, worth 54.6 trillion Hwans a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,581 Hwans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. 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 Humpback whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Union of the Oriental States is ranked 150,885th in the world and 7,799th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 5.67 Prayers Per Hour.
