OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Federal Republic of Oometz is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President McCormick with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.554 billion Oometzians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sekkandria. The average income tax rate is 2.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oometzian economy, worth a remarkable 4,123 trillion kinas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 328,483 kinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', and President McCormick tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Oometz's national animal is the raggiana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Oometz is ranked 12,475th in the world and 273rd in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,248.66 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
