The Democratic Republic of Ouroboric is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lilith Blacke with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.091 billion Ouroboricians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zenesque. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ouroborician economy, worth 126 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,356 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, and the Ouroboric Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ouroboric's national animal is the pikachu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ouroboric is ranked 136,560th in the world and 5,337th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10.87 on the Hayek Index.
