New ori

Population200 million


The United Socialist States of New ori is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 200 million New orians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The powerhouse New orian economy, worth 15.1 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 75,457 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 355,498 per year while the poor average 9,510, a ratio of 37.4 to 1.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, incompetent former soldiers have been re-employed as incompetent cleaners and kitchen staff, political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime is a problem. New ori's national animal is the Turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

New ori is ranked 8,319th in the world and 26th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,753.5 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
