Holy Oranz

The Ecclesiocracy of Holy Oranz is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Priestess Kanon with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 8.77 billion Oranzians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akhet. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranzian economy, worth a remarkable 3,552 trillion haels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 405,096 haels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and people say chess victor High Priestess Kanon can kill you with mind-bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Oranz's national animal is the Royal Crested Sea Mesc, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Sheutism.

Holy Oranz is ranked 208,017th in the world and 9,243rd in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.14 Crimes Per Hour.
