Xia Osom Eth Awska

The Republic of Xia Osom Eth Awska is a massive, pleasant nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 1.039 billion Xia Osom Eth Awskans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.1%.

The Xia Osom Eth Awskan economy, worth 47.3 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,518 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 150,380 per year while the poor average 10,303, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xia Osom Eth Awska's national animal is the cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Xia Osom Eth Awska is ranked 46,417th in the world and 58th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,225.09 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
