THE Ophelia OF SYA

Population317 million

Animal雷纳德

The Empire of THE Ophelia OF SYA is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 317 million Ophelians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ophelia OF SYAian economy, worth 25.8 trillion YUAN a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,235 YUAN, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being dead no longer has any benefits, the arms industry is strictly regulated, gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, and politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. THE Ophelia OF SYA's national animal is the 雷纳德, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

THE Ophelia OF SYA is ranked 26,540th in the world and 801st in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,907.26 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
