The Rogue Nation of OS Ranch is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 532 million OS Ranchians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.
The strong OS Ranchian economy, worth 38.6 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 72,509 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, crayon squiggles were a late addition to the works of the Renaissance Old Masters, and more citizens have access to Maxtopian Grass than clean drinking water. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. OS Ranch's national animal is the Horned Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
