The Red of The O C
“The La Champione is Herrre!!!”

Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Red of The O C is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jason Partyka with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.028 billion O Cians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 60.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming O Cian economy, worth 95.8 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 93,231 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, communists in The O C note that wealth should be equal but that some should have more of that equality than others, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and love is a precious butterfly to be crushed under diplomatic protocol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The O C's national animal is the Ghost, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
