Osiris Gameside Affairs

Population2.232 billion


The Dominion of Osiris Gameside Affairs is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.232 billion Osiris Gameside Affairsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 53.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Osiris Gameside Affairsian economy, worth 18.6 trillion tacoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 8,314 tacoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, and Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osiris Gameside Affairs's national animal is the snek.

Osiris Gameside Affairs is ranked 212,517th in the world and 6,656th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 248.98 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
