The People's Republic of Owans is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Moran with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.211 billion Owens enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The relatively small, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Owen. The average income tax rate is 30.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Owansian economy, worth a remarkable 1,117 trillion OZZES a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 179,945 OZZES, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire. Crime is totally unknown. Owans's national animal is the chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
