The Confederacy of Ohioan Communes is a small, safe nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 26 million Ohioans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The weak Ohioan economy, worth 719 billion work credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 27,658 work credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ohioan Communes's national animal is the white-tail deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ohioan Communes is ranked 127,991st in the world and 1st in Libertarian Socialist Alliance for Most Average, scoring 30.17 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
